The staff doesn't know how to work together. The children are unruly, they communicate poorly with parents, an all around terrible experience. Our daughter is going elsewhere next year. She missed her kindergarten graduation because the teacher neglected to tell us about it while my child was doing her work at home. Don't use this school unless you enjoy headaches and frustration.

I am seriously disappointed in this school and would NEVER recommend sending any children here. There is no accountability to the students or parents by the teachers. When asking for resolutions by the board of directors, she has little or no response. My children attended Toledo Catholic schools for 7 years and were promoted to every grade and now there is a problem? I have a difficult time believing that.
