Don't send your kids to this school!! The quality of the education there is terrible!! Kids get a whole bunch of free time every day, and the teachers teach almost nothing. Besides, some teachers are very mean to kids, particularly one in kindergarten and one in first grade. They are both awful. As parents, we were so disappointed about their education quality. Also, our child was so unhappy with the school. Our helplessness and the very lousy experiences with the school made us to decide that we want our child to transfer to another school. After some researches, we moved the entire family to another school district. Now, we know how far it is for this school to be qualified as a good school. Now we are happy that we've made a right decision!! No more fear, anger, and helplessness in the new school!!
