  • I really dislike this school for several reasons. Most importantly, the students are out of control bad and has caused continuous problems with my children. The staff does not respond in a timely manner and most times ignores anything that I tell them when something does happen. I have never seen (...) who take sure horrible care for their students. I have also talked to several other parents and they have had the same issues that I've having now.

    Some of the teachers really care about their students but unfortunately that is not across the board. Some of them are just collecting a pay check.
