Your child will end up in a deep depression if u go here. Everyone from the PTO to the Principal live in their own world, if your house hold income isnt at leaste $80-100,000./a year forget about it, your not invited nor do u exist. The office staff are very rude, but the nurse is nice. The Principal walks around like Hitler. The teachers think if your kids are not perfect then they either have a learning disabilitie or they need to be medicated. The teachers say they will do somthing to help ur child but never do. Expecially the younger teachers! The teachers aids will scream at your child and not let them go to the bathroom so they end up doing it in their pants! The lunch aids make ur kids eat everything on their plate. They dont make enough lunch, so if ur kids are last they have to spread PB & J from a squeez tube on bread by their self. If your child is a 'Class Clown' they say that they have an emotional disability and put them in the 'special class'with 'violent kids and enjoy putting them in the Time out' room, ITS A PADDED CELL!!! NO JOKE!!!! I saw it and cried. IVE TALKED TO OTHER PARENTS, ITS NOT JUST ME. SO GLAD IM MOVING,
