My problem with this school is how the kids has to stand outside until exactly 9 am to get in regardless of the weather. Then the pledge starts at 9 while you're in process of dropping your lil ones off. No respect for parents who have to go straight to work. Other schools let's in at 845 drop off is easy no Hassel just only at bond.
