I will not send my children here. I attended their open house and was very impressed with their facilities, the principal seemed very professional, and a great 8th grader gave us a nice tour. Then, I came back in to tour the school while it was in session. Oh my, what a letdown. The office lady seemed disinterested in our presence. The vice principal, who agreed to walk us on the tour, dumped us when we arrived down the first hallway. She literally left when we walked into the 1st grade classroom, never to be seen again. From what I observed in the Kindergarten and 1st grade classes, the kids seemed antsy and unhappy. The teachers seemed rigid and cold. The kindergarten teacher, in particular, was just not that nice to the kids at all, and that was in front of me, a prospective parent! Some other teachers, 2nd grade and 5th grade, and Pre-K, were friendly, warm, and helpful. Overall, it's a shame because there are some red flags. By the way, we wandered through the hallways, sometimes making contact with the rude office lady, who seemed eager for us to leave. So, we did just that. No one even tried to stop us.
