I don't feel they push the kids to achieve their full potential. My child is learning the same thing from pre-k and she's in kindergarten. The principal that's another topic, she could do better. This my child only year she will attend this school. I see why kids are behind they are teaching them pretty much nothing. If they make learning fun you will gain any child or children attention.
