    My daughter actually attended the southwest campus. This is a horrible school it is ran in a very unprofessional manner. I was chastised by the "superintendent" on several occasions as if I was not an adult. The reviews I read previous to my child going here were very accurate the teachers are treated poorly my child attended through April there was three different teacher assistants and the teacher quit in the middle of the school year and the parents were not notified. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE! If zero stars was an option that's what I would give this school.

    This is my first year at this school and so far I Impressed with the teachers and staff. My daughter's teacher is Mrs. Gudao and her teaching abilities are impressive. My daughter really enjoys her class and has learned so much in just one month of school. Her teacher seems to care for every student's education and also gives the needed indiviual attention each child needs. I am happy with this school and will continue to send my daughter there if they continue to have such great teachers like Mrs. Gudao.
