School Reviews

1   4/26/2021
This school has false promises. The teachers are rude and don't put any effort into teaching the children. This school has a huge problem with bullying and treating kids differently. This school is bias. I do not recommend this school at all to parents who want the teachers to interact with the students. They copy and paste work from other schools and make packets to give the students. The promises on their website are not given in the facility. The teachers are racist.
