Unprofessional, disorganized, ghetto, and not good with attending to their students. I pulled my kids out and sent them to another school after their first months. Within the time my children attended I had continuous problems. This school treats parents as if they are unintelligent or unaware of how a school should perform. If I could rate this school it would be far below negative.
