    I disagree with the parent who posted the comments last year in June. My question to you is Did you address this issue with the school administrator? I have my children there for 2 years and I never had any issue. My son was assigned to another school for kindergarten and I asked the principal to keep him at the school without having any issues. I love the teachers and the staff. They welcome you every morning. I have been involved in the school activities as I am very well informed through the school calendar PTO meetings and the school telephone messages to parents. The school does a great job. I would keep my child there.

    This school is over rated in my experience. The faculty I dealt with are uncaring and outright rude. They rarely return phone calls inform parents about upcoming events until the last minute if at all (I never received May or June's calender /other important paperwork)...despite calling for it. They treated my child like a stepchild! My child hated it there. Don't even mention the "curriculum". I have other children that I have had wonderful experiences with in the LPS this is NOT one of them. You are your child's advocate give them a decent start in a caring school. When my child started the teacher made no attempt to greet either of us on the first day I initiated that. She just came out and looked at us and went back in the room. She seemed very detached from the kids. That should have been my first clue. Trust me parents on this one. There is a reason the average community rating for this school is 1/5. If I could I would give it less than that. The ONLY bright spot about this school was the nurse. I really should have listened to my friends and family and insisted my child go elsewhere. I have never written a review before but this was needed I feel. Just my opinion.

    School has four floors and my kid in kindergarden and they make him go all the way to fourth floor - food offered to kids in also doesn`t have much variety and neighbourhood though safe but not great -i`ll not recommend this school to your kid
