This school was great but the quality of the school has deteriorated since they have opened. The teachers are a mixed bag. My children thankfully had (for the most part) great teachers. It's the administration that was hard to deal with. There was a lack of communication and respect for children and parents. I hope that they can change this because the school started off great. I was a little confused with the grading system and teachers didnt email or contact me if my children had problems with what they were learning. Mainly a lack of communication was the problem. Also when I had issues with something, I often felt the administration were not listening. This makes it hard for parents to work with the school as a team. Hopefully things get better.
