Office staff is unfortunately pretty rude and unhelpful. The school is not very friendly or accommodating to kids with special needs.

Discipline problems are out of hand in my daughter's class. There is a lack of consistency, order, and calmness within the classroom. The lack of respect for authority or for peers astounds me. As a whole, the kids have been 'snooty' and unwelcoming to newcomers. They have high standards when it comes ...  Read more
