I was very excited when my child was able to attend PALS after being placed on a waiting list. However, my excitiement was soon replaced with disappointment and frustration. I will honestly say that I would not recommend that school to even my worst enemy. I have never experienced such negativie and unprofessional conduct by many of the staff and the administration. My child's teacher did not even have a degree in education. Needless to say, I withdrew my child from PAlS before the end of the school year.
