School Reviews

  • Recommended June 08, 2010 - 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. - Posted by Parent
