My daughter does not like this school. Not because of the students but the teachers. The teachers seem angry and burned out. They are sarcastic and rude to students. I did not like how they only speak to other adults even when asking a question of the student. My daughter breaks down crying when she gets home to safety, and is now having nightmares since attending this school. Every day she finds an illness so she doesn't have to go. We are looking into homeschool and any other options. Children deserve better. Please don't send your child here.
