Bulling,Snarky and sarcastic teachers, but at the same time there were a few wonderful ones too. all in all my childrenwere glad to get out of this school
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 3, 2010

the teachers are to quick to judge instead of find out what is really going on they instantly accuse a parent who was being nice of doing something they were not...and the other parents are let off instantly even if they are the ones who were causing problems in front of children and other parents
