    Poor moral values picked up by my child very disappointed!!!

  • (6 years ago)

    Too much control--not enough freedom to try new ideas. Parents not allowed to voice their opinions.

  • (6 years ago)

    The teachers and staff at this school are excellent! They are very hands on and are very willing to work with the parents to do what is best for the child. I am very happy that my son goes to this school.
