This is the dirtiest school ad they have rudest teachers and security guards! I have seen them put their hands on children’s curse at them and even take them into dark rooms! My son came home and told me he saw them take a child! Horrible school and the principal is very childish! She needs to be retrained! The whole staff should be replaced!

The Special Education Teacher does not embrace the mission statement of what the school claims to believe, showing respect towards all students for a student with disabilities.
