  • Oh my gosh where do I start! This school is absolutely kaotic. There is no parking, kids have no discipline, they are running everywhere, staff are unorganized and uninformed, and the place is not safe at all. Once I just walked in the unlocked gate in back with no one noticing! I took my friend's daughter out of class once and no one asked who I was. My daughter never comes home with any homework (she stopped carrying a backpack)and she learns all her stuff at home. Event notices are not being sent home and if some do make it to the house, its 1 or 2 days before the event. The staff, mainly the secretary, never knows any information! The classrooms are nasty, paper and books everywhere. There is no room for the kids, they have to share classes with other students from different levels. Not to mention there is no P.T., music, or any other activities they can get involved in. I think parents put up with this school because its conveniently downtown and because of the hours. This is the worse school ever, needless to say, my daughter will not be coming back!! F-
