DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE. THE SCHOOL HIRES RUDE OFFICE STAFF AND THEY DO NOT TEACH CURSIVE WRITING. THE SUBS CAN'T READ CURSIVE WRITING EITHER. THE SCHOOL DOES EVERYTHING LAST MINUTE THEN GETS ANGRY WITH YOU FOR CHANGING THE WAY A CHILD GETS HOME! DO THINGS SCHEDULED AND THE STRESS WOULD BE LESS FOR THE PARENTS!!!
