Excellent Staff Great Principal and Teachers. Living in the West End and getting my last Choice , Being the Tobin I was a little Upset BUT they have a great operation and The Children are greatly Motivated by the wait the Teachers teach, Simply Fantastic. There is only One problem Being the Transportation My daughter was involved in an accident last year and split her head open ,Instead of the bus Driver stopping and calling for EMT he went too all the other pickups and then let her walk too the nurse I was Irate but the Law suit handled this ...This year Yesterday 9/10/2015 my daughter was literally assaulted by the bus driver and now they will have too deal with my lawyers on this issue omg! he is lucky I'm a Veteran w PTSD and I was so happy I controlled my actions when He stopped and I witnessed this because ,,,well I'm not going there. This was after I waited 3 hours for her too arrive while tracking the app which never updated and according too the transportation dispatch this driver didn't even have his dispatch radio on. I thank God I was able too remain Calm and not violate this ignorant driver.

This is my daughters 1st year at the Tobin and i was very skeptical of the choice especially that her new teacher was a male guy but the transition went very well and staff are very friendly. I love the idea that they are bilingual. My daughter loves it and that 's what counts.
