Don't send your children to this school, teachers bullying students. Department head/ principle couldn't care less about the treatment of our children. It's all politics if you not part of the team then your screwed. They cover for their own. If your child miss behaves they want to kick them out. They can't handle any distraction to their job. Zero stars from me. Worst school ever!!
