My son has done so well at all his schools. He's a bit hyper buy never had the issues he has here with his teacher. It's sad because before we moved he was doing GREAT. I never had a problem maybe like once a month but now his teacher is constantly complaining about how he doesn't listen but I don't have that problem at home or have I had it in the past. So just be aware of how your child acts and what schools in the area are best for them. I regret picking this school n we have a school of choice so we will be changing the next school year. Good area but kindergarten teachers aren't all that.
