This school lacks organization. The staff are friendly but do NOT pay attention to the important things such as ensuring that kids are being properly supervised and the field trips ALWAYS run past the designated time they say on the permission slips which causes a great deal of anxiety if you are waiting until 8:30pm on a school night to pick your child up.
