My son is now in first grade at Randels after he struggled through kindergarten and first few months of first grade at another Carmen ainsworth school for behavioral problems. Randels took my son in and thanks to there EI class and Ms.Smith my son now loves going to school and is not having behavioral problems. I also love how if there is any problems I am notified by phone right away. My twins will start elementary next year and even though I live closer to another Carmen elementary I will be sending them to Randels. looking forward to the mother son and father daughter dance
