  • Well I had a very bad experiencwe with my kids this last year ..I am going to let them try this school year one more time but the moment that I know that The teachers are not doing job..My kids are out of that School for sure.. I had very high expectation of that school ..But I was wrong.. First the School most of the teachers are all relatives including the janitorial and that is not right...I have heard some teachers making comments about family members that are students in that school and the teachers are always taking sides when kids are having a disagreement they need to grow up and teach instead of acting like little girls...Let kids be kids...One more thing what happend to not hiring relatives at the same facility ...I have a big problem wit that .. I can tell you that I am not the only one that feels this way from talking to diffrent mothers over this summer vacation it has been very suprising to me... The things I was told...
