This school is the worst!! My child use to come home with bruises everywhere and when I asked the teachers they would tell me to ask the security and the securities would tell me to ask the principal. No one knew where my son got the bruises even though my child would tell them. One time he had this really big purple bruise on his spine!! How was I suppose to explain that to his doctors!!! I moved him from the school after his first year. If you want your child to learn and to NOT get abuse everyday. I suggest not going here!!!!
