We are not happy with this school. The school indicates that parents are welcomed, but once you go, you are told you can only stay for 30 minutes - no longer. Only one class room out of four (for each grade level) is inclusive - meaning that it has all the special education kids. The other three class rooms for that grade level are non-inclusive. Unfortunately, our child has been in the inclusive class for every year. We were told it is our bad luck. They refuse to move our child to one of the non-inclusive classes where our child would have the opportunity to experience a normal class room that does not have 6 to 8 special education students and the several teachers/aides that also are in the classroom to support the special education students. It is diffcult for our child to concentrate and learn in that environment.
