  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on June 18, 2007
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Good curriculum. Some great teachers. Poor administration from the top, the principal does not work well with concerned parents. Staff sometimes goes over the line with the children in their care and when reported there seems to be no follow through. Principal pretends to be concerned and gives you the 'Dealing with Parents 101' correct responses but I have found out the hard way there is no follow through.
