Although this school is just around the corner from my place. I do not recommend this school unless you have no choice. Sure there maybe more diverse students that attend this school. Unfortunately, my child was "considered stealing" out of the treasure box. My child was just anxious and instead of waiting her turn to pick out a prize she got up and grabbed a prize. But no teacher should tell a parent or label a child as a thief, especially in kindergarten. When you have a degree in a field, you must love what you do
