I'm beyond frustrated with the school my 1st son goes to. My 2nd son starts kindergarten and will NOT be starting with my 1st son at ACA I swear that school has reached a boiling point with me ! And I just found out today he wasn't accepted and school started today or in the next few days in the area!! I've been to 4 different school and there all FULL ! for kindergarten and 2nd grade !!! I hate the enrollment and administrative staff at ACA they're so uneducated with the simple work they have to do ! Can you believe they told me my 2nd son wasn't even on the wait list because he didn't have a sibling there to speed the process up after I cuss them tf out and educated their ass on my 1st son thats been going there for 2 years they put my 2nd son 1st on that piece of Removed wait list !!! BUT the enrollment personal wants to tell me kindergarten was full sense April !!! Wtf ! So why didn't anybody in the front say my 2nd son wasn't going to be able to attend ACA Ugh I hated ACA when I went there why would I send my boys there !! The staff NEVER gets better all they do is take all your money to hire uneducated under qualified staff members !! Don't let me get stated on the lunch menu they have that makes my kid sick ! I can write a book about this dumb ass school !!! Do not send your kids to ACA save yourself a headache !! If it's NOT one thing it's another ! You would think since I graduated from there and my children's father and siblings did to they would act right ! BUT NO ! I highly doubt that school has a A+ education rating judging by the staff they hire !
