School Reviews

Do not send your children here for fear of never hearing from them again. I applyed to this school for my son who is in second grade. I was told that he would have a spot and was invited to their meet the teachers event. I had some further questions, but when I called the direcor...nothing. I couldn't get in touch with her. I left four messages! Needless to say I wouldn't allow my son to attend this school if is was the last in the district.
