    Don't let the teachers and principal of this particular school think that your kid is the problem because if you do you are going to take it against your kid. They just don't have the will (they call it resources) to work with a kid that requires more attention. Don't let them give up hope!! There are other schools willing to work with your kid. I put my kid on Carmel Christian and it's been a blessing. My hyper kid is not a problem for them and they work with him through different programs to help him succeed. Understand not all kids learn the same way some are visual some are by listening and others by touching. If your kids teacher doesn't know this then don't waste your time and Monet and go find a better school. It's my personal experience.

    Excellent school. I send my children there for the immersion of Christian culture. The whole focus is on Catholic principles and character - this is priceless to me.

    This is a great school. Parent involvement is amazing. The principal could be more responsiive but the catholic schools in this area are hard to compete with. Children really learn values.
