School Reviews

  • Recommended December 05, 2010 - I think the quailty in academics are horrible, my kid came home and told me that he has not learned anything because his teacher does not teach well. He also told me that he feels aroused because the teachers are very aware on what he did at all times. I think this school should be shut down! I am not very happy with this school! - Posted by Parent
