White River School 3

I have a kindergartner in this school who is a boy very hyper yes as he is 6 years old. I don't think that sending a child to the principals office an her basically treating them like they are criminals is anyway for them to be treated in elementary school. I can see them getting talked to but to keep bringing up something they did wrong over and over makes no sense to me. Also having them draw a picture of what they did come on. I could see if they were older kids but pre k and kindergarteners give me a break. Need a principal who isn't so harsh on such little kids. I will be sending my son to a different school next year where I have heard nothing but great things about an no parents have complained about the other school.

The principal runs the school, like a dictator and superiority complex. My two kids attend, this school and one of them is a special needs child, he did not get the kind of help he needed for his dyslexia. My son can be a handful, and the principal takes it out on us, as if we are her children as well. Some of the teachers are OK, but there are some that are rude and have some prejudices.
