—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 26, 2010

lets just day that is the thirday of school and im ready to move my child to another school... The staff does not care about the students especialy the kindergartners , they let them wonder off and if they are crying they wont even bother to check to see whats wrong with them... I dont even feel comfortable leaving him there, oh and they let a 5 yr old walk home alone and can't even tell the parent were their child is....not a good school at all.
