School Reviews

I have had many problems with this school. My kids only reason for wanting to stay is for the after-school program. They are both wanting out. One is a gifted student. The other is gifted with numbers only. One is in the office and is being ridiculed for any action that is made. I will be removing my kids due to lack of help and guidance from a child.
