I am a parent of a child who attended this piece of crap school since 2006. I am not satisfied the way they deal with kids who have behavior/ emotional problems. I don't believe they have training in those iareas. When you speak to some of staff members they look at you like you have a 3rd eye. Office members ignore you half time and shouldn't work in public if they aren't polite. I am looking forward for my child to attend another school. I could never stand to look at that poorly looking playground I've seen better ones at McDonald's ..really.It is always trashy not even trash can in sight. The don't have music n gym is sad they make kids line up n repeat rules some kids are picked out to play and some aren't. I feel they should run,jump play freely since they may have hyperactive issues. Parents don't send you're kids here you will regret it.
