School Reviews

School is full of vindictive teachers/staff who intimidate children and disregard their education. They are only concerned with the enormous pay they receive. Horrible school!

I find the school could be ran in a better manner and the children should be put first. The staff is not helpful as they should be and don't treat parents or kids with the respect and kindness that is necessary. They do things that are convenient for the staff and not consideration of the kids or parents. There are a few...quite a few staff members that are helpful...sad to say none of them are at the top of the ladder. Either way I wouldn't recommend the school, consider other schools in the area with higher reputations.
