A few years ago this school acquired a new principal that lacks much knowledge. She often smelled like a strong mix of alcohol & heavy perfume. I have 3 children. I liked the school a lot while my two oldest were in their k-2 grades(different principal/decent teachers). My youngest child is Autistic and completed kindergarten here. Because of his behavior (related to autism) he was sent home daily in the middle of the day for the first few months. I had several meetings with the school and told them to stop sending him home because he was not getting an education. Then they threatened to suspend him and possibly expel him. Only when I brought a teacher from another school with to a meeting and started documenting our meetings and every situation that took him out of learning IN FRONT of the school employees with the awareness I was going to the board did things change...some. My son was forcibly restrained. Pressure points used. Many in minor situations like him being upset he couldn't get a drink of water. He was EXTREMELY behind in learning here. Changed Schools for 1st grade. Night/Day difference. His grades are in the average range and he hasn't been sent home once.
