School Reviews

  • Recommended August 18, 2015 - Arrogant Bullies in my experience run this school, this School violates all state and federal law when it comes to IDEA 504 Title ll, they claim they have no resource rooms when they do but only for the Villages teachers and corp employees children. I know many families that this school has hurt, someone needs to start a class action law suit. The claim being rated one of the best schools around. But when you get to pick the laws that you want to follow and get the best kids, and get rid of below average or learning disabled children. I guess you would have to be rated better then other schools. The school district is in on it also. Very nice campus. Cult like atmosphere. High teacher turn over. They like to hold kids back, they will spend more money fighting you to keep your kid out if they don't want you there then it would just to educate your child the right way under the law. Arrogant bullies would be the best term to describe the admin at the school. 30 years behind the time . You will have 3 to 4 hours of homework. You get to teach your kids at home. No lockers so your kids will carry heavy books around all day. They will have back problems by the end of the year.if you are not a teacher or village corp employee top level your kids will get no chance at scholarships and accolades that is reserved for teacher and level one village employees kids. thry have no tablets or high tech equipment giving to the for use. But expect your to have it. Everyone running around scared to say anything the hold your job over you head to get their way. I could go on for hours about this school with not much good to say in my experience. - Posted by Parent
