School Reviews

  • Recommended February 28, 2012 - The administration is not personable, nor do they listen to what the parent's suggest is in the best interest of their child. It's cookie cutter education. My child is in first grade and all that is focused on is the CRCT test. He also does a great deal of cut and paste worksheets. I work with my child quite a bit outside of school to ensure that he is on target. I am enrolling my child in a private school for the upcoming school year. I am not only a parent but an educator. - Posted by Parent
