    Absolutely the worst school my child has ever attended. My child is special needs and non-verbal.Teacher negligence, no speech therapist after requesting one, no improvement with behavior or educational, coming home with either his clothes shredded or missing with no explanation,....and know one knows what's going on. I would *NEVER* recommend this school to anyone who cares for their child's safety and well-being!!
