School Reviews

Preschool classrooms are too big. There are too many boys in class that outnumber the girls. Communication issues between parents and teachers. I would rather speak to a teacher then use email or phone apps. I don't get daily reports or notes in bookbags, And I don't appreciate my child telling meshes being hit by other students in her class and I am not notified.
