Teachers here yell, refuse bathroom breaks, and make kids cry. I've witnessed them being RUDE to the children each morning as I drop my son off and have complained over and over to the principal. They literally stand around with their arms crossed, rolling their eyes at children exiting vehicles, and YELL at them to hurry up! Unbelievable! I've encountered ONE good teacher thus far (my child's current teacher), but his teacher last year was so horrible that I withdrew him and homeschooled. He has been on just one field trip the entire school year, which is surprising given that this is a wealthy district. I'm shocked and disgusted at the general attitude and behaviors of this school.
