My children attend this school for now as we are waiting for acceptance to another school. The culture of this school is racist and the staff only cares about enrollment and money for PTA. Once you enroll good luck getting anyone to give you 5 minutes. No one follows school rules instead that make it up and get away with it. Yes be warned and don't speak up or entire school takes it out on your child.
