    Very unfriendly staff - almost socially awkward. There seem to be a culture of being catty & gossipy there. Fortunately my son had a great teacher but socially he(teacher) was not as professional/mature as I think teachers should be. Curriculum was annoying to say the least. "Annoying" because there were too many mistakes in it & it lacks common sense at times. If your child has been to a good preschool he/she will be bored because its not much more challenging than preschool curriculum. There's also poor poor communication between staff & parents. Some veteran parents told me "Oh you'll figure things out after awhile." Some things (events programs what is expected from parents etc) are not clearly announced as if 'you're just suppose to know these things'. I had to find out things from parent who has had kids there multiple yrs. I felt like I was in some Twilight Zone world.

    I would not recommend this school to anyone. My child was very depressed last year and his teacher did not help much during his last year in this school. I ve experience from other elementary and middle schools in LWSD and I can see the difference.
