School Reviews

5   9/29/2021
I love this school. My kids love this school because there is no homework. At first, I was skeptical of the no homework thing but I do not know how but they passed all the state tests with high marks. They woke up and want to go to school. If they are bad at home I threatened them with no school tomorrow and they hurried to do their chores. What an easy way to threaten a kid, no school for you if you are lazy.
