It feels like the children are inmates in jail. The children do not appear to be treated appropriately. Adults in the school speak to the children as if they were adults. There appears to be little tolerance for childhoood. The cafeteria atmosphere is unacceptable. The children are verbally mistreated and often threatened with "the corner". The kids are not encouraged to talk and normal childhood interation appears to be shunned. I have witnessed the children being told to shut their mouths. It does not appear to be a school where education is the priority.
I am very happy with the school this year. Everything is well organized, the school environment is safe, the discipline aproach is very positive, and all teachers are dedicated.
Lot's of positive changes since last year. New principal, new teachers.
I can wait untill this school year finish to take off my kids from this school. I never will recomend this school to nobody they don't have any organization, and the techers don't have any comunication with you is like they don't care about anything. The only teacher that sorprise me from that school is Mss. Osten, is the only one.
