School Reviews

This is the worst school I have ever taught at. Admin does not care if the kids are successful or not. Some teachers leave during the day to handle personal business and stay on Facebook instead of teaching. When parents come to the school admin pretends, they have it together. The school is running on autopilot. Teachers have no support discipline is not enforced, and you will only be successful if you fall in the click with admin. Very cut throat.
