Very unprofessional environment. You would expect more from a school that has this much potential.

My children attend the haranbee charter school since 2005!! Its a great school BUT if you want your children to learn about their heritage you have to do some damage control at the end of the day! I say this because there is a large focus on african heritage and all children should know about their history!! ...  Read more
