This school only cares about there appearance! They really are not there for the caring of the children, it's like a school club that only the elite can handle. My child has been bullied by different kids and brought up to the teacher and principals attention and they just talk about it soft spoken and do NOTHING! I'm regretting having my kid in this school for many reasons that are brush under the rug!
