    As a parent was horrible to see my son have to come back home frustrated and humiliated by the staff that woman Lucy Quintana made my son's life miserable and others too I don't know how people like this is allowed to work with and around children I have another child in elementary age and I have to take him to another school much more far away because of this Its sad that the school never did anything to solve this problem the Principal never even acknowledged the complaints.
