If you have a child with special needs please do not send your child here. They don't give your child or you the support your child needs. I am very disappointmented by the schools lack of interest in my child with special needs. She has been there three years and they act as if she is new to their school. It's very frustrating. The principal is not professional at all. She needs to take some trainings to improve her people skills.
