Love the school. Drop off takes less than 5 minutes. The first week was a little hectic, but that's to be expected. I've been able to walk my kid up to where you cross from the parking lot into the school, and my kid has never been tardy. My kid loves the school, teacher and friends. He is learning a ton and enjoys it - what more can you ask for?

Getting into the school is a joke. Traffic is a nightmare! Can not walk your children to the door since the end of school year 2019. Forced to use a car pool. Car pool takes 20 minutes or more every day, just to drop off. Then you are tardy. At least 30 kids are tardy every day. Walked our child every day last year to the door. No tardies! Now traffic outside of school (East Cherokee Road and Hickory) is a nightmare. If you are a parent, you have to keep your child safe in any parking lot. The school is no different. Was told today, if you walk in, then you are automatically tardy!! Really?!
