    HUGE MISTAKE MOVING HUGE!!! Have a child with SPECIAL NEEDS and the district has been EXTREMELY UNSUPPORTIVE and causing us an alot of unnecessary STRESS!! THE WORST DISTRICT we've ever dealt with!! We questioned the bad reviews and didn't think it would be so bad but IT'S MUCH WORSE!! Apparently this district only "LIKES" kids who are wealthy athleticy gifted or academicly above their peers. They have treated us so POORLY!! I have NOTHING good to say I'm so very disappointed for my family and my child.
