School Reviews

2  
This is a terrible school for children to attend. They have teachers that constantly scream at the students and are asked inappropriate questions about the child's personal life. Children are not permitted to use the restroom in an emergency or they are "clipped down." Recently a first grader wet herself because the teacher refused to allow her to use the restroom. Frequently there's no soap available to wash hands after using the restroom. There are student monitors in the boys' bathroom that watch students using the bathroom. Children are not permitted to talk at lunch and the amount of homework is excessive, such as 36 math problems.
