Posted April 26, 2013

This school has the worse front staff in all of Aldine. Many concerns I have addressed and they fail to communicate. Everytime I call, I'm provided incorrect information. They preach about bullys when I raised a concern (over 8) nothing was done until a blast e-mail was sent out. Then they all said I never heard of this. After school program you get what you pay for 60 dollars a month provides a roof, cheap snacks and plenty of time for children to misbehave and pick on othet kids. The only one teacher that was good left sick and never came back. Worse school ever.

Had working teachers! Good end of day program for children to stay after they get out of school. Safe place and fun activities. Concerned staff. Good tutoring program two days each week. Not needed Saturday class!
