This school has negatively impacted my college experience both on an academic and social level. The only way your kid can be accepted as student there is if they sign a waiver/contract to allow the teachers to send them to time out. The parents make their kids do this! The curriculum doesn t teach age appropriate topics very well, the teachers often don't know what they're doing. I ask you this, if you asked an18 year old how many words they can find in Rainy Monday they'd feel insulted, or angry and think you take them for a fool! There are three time out rooms all the sizes of shoe closets that aren t high enough, they have a little window and a circular hole for a door handle which can give you splinters. What if a very fat or obese person goes in the room, can they get in and out easily? What about a fat and tall person? I once saw a tall skinny kid and in the room and his neck was bent down because it wasn't a tall enough room! He could get a neck ache/sore neck maybe even a medical issue! What if there was a person on a wheel chair, could they get in a room. What if that person was fat and tall? What if someone had a cold? The rooms don't get sanitized after each use! Gross!

If you want a sitter service for your kid, this is the place. Scimpy academics; too much left to student self-teach. Self-serving administrators with little moral leadership. Certainly does not match the image presented. Districts pay lots of $$ for what??
