School Reviews

I signed up but never got a chance to teach. The Yuma Harvest Prep system, without warning, cut me out of the system. I could not see what substitute assignments were given. I was already having trouble accessing and brought this up. It was never addressed. Not a single request for a meeting was granted. Never. The HR department is incompetent and unprofessional beyond words. I''ve already told them as much. I would never place my child in this system.
