    Horrible Experience. I have a child with a learning disability who has been regressing I talked with the principle and tried to get her to work with me to figure something out she wouldn't just said she would do what needed to be done. I told her that I felt I had no other choice but to file a complaint and she told me to go ahead because she felt like she was ok at Ben Hill Elementary. Not only unprofessional but wrong!
