School Reviews

  • Recommended February 14, 2015 - Horrible school! A+ rating is mostly due to volunteer hours not testing. It's like a mini jail. kids are always told to be quiet. Parents are not allowed to have a voice or you get mistreated as well as your child. Classrooms are NOT 15 to 1 more like 20 or more per class.. Not enough focus on learning and helping kids. More screaming and yelling at the children then anything. My child is at a new school and loves ot! He is treated like a Lil person not a prisoner. He has freedoms.. I would not recommend this school. It's also very cliquey between PRO and staff... which should not be allowed. If you don't fit what they want they run you out. it happened to quite a few parents that I knew. - Posted by Parent
