Second time posting this so lets see if you take this down again. My grandson started kindergarden here and was very excited. He was bullied, picked on and abused almost daily. He came home too many times with bite marks, scratches, and spit. He had to be assigned a bus seat to help him and the school did not follow-up on his seating so he still went through this. In school he still suffered torment from other students. One incident the school said couldn't said they at the time could get ahold of the parents of the children doing these deeds. I don't write this out of malice, I write it out of concern for other children and my own who could go through this again.

I love the environment. It is very well Kept and that means it is ready for the children to come to an environment that is conductive to learning. The teachers are very caring and patience and are motivated to assist children and parents with educating the children. The leadership is support of parents, teachers, children and community.
