It took 3 weeks to get an appointment to enroll my child. There is not enough staff to meet the demands of the children or its just laziness. Instead of promoting my child's education there were pointless meetings required to even make any positive changes. This isn't good. Not all people are stable enough to keep calm during the pointless meetings(to insult the incompetent teacher) which are required to change teachers. If it does not promote education it should not be required!
