My son was in K here. It was a terrible experience. He has ADHD and was treated terrible. He was very excited to attend school and the teacher broke that in a matter of a week. He became fearful and cried everyday. I asked for alternative placement for him but was told there was none. I was asked to put him on medication before they would allow him to return to the classroom (which I now know was illegal) My heart breaks that I forced my son into this building everyday unknowing to what was happening to him on the other side. The teachers lack of experience made the situation worse as did the principles lack of empathy.
