This school is the worst school to send a child to. The teachers there do not talk to the parents about how the child is doing in the classes.And when you do have to talk to the teacher they get upset because you are questioning them. I would recommend that you NEVER put your child in this school if you have other option available.The principle does not like to get involved if there is a problem between the parent and the teacher due to lack of communication skill on the teachers part.

Most of the children in this area are being taught things that they should already know before even starting school. They are far behind the national average. It really shows in the older kids.
