The school runs like a slaughterhouse line. Get in, get out and don't ask questions. The teachers are impatient with the parents and most of all with the kids. Very pushy attitudes. It's poorly run overall and I wish I never moved to this area because now our son is forced to attend this run-down school. Their idea of lunch is crackers and crap. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. The kids are wired and borderline violent. We're talking 5 yr olds!!
