    This school is mediocre. The teachers do not care about their students my daughter had two incidents while the teacher was not even paying attention to her according to her teacher my daughter broke a plastic bucket and cut herself in the neck.. The second incident I saw bruised finger prints on my child's arm. I immediately called child protection services and they are currently investigating the school and teacher. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE..
