    This was my elementary school in the late 90s. My daughter came here for 1st grade from Union Chrisitan Day School. Here first day she went to the class we registered in and she was turned away by the teacher saying it was no longer her class. The teacher did not walk her to her class but told her it was up the hall. She cried because she couldnt find her class until someone saw her and showed her. Thankfully her new teacher was one from the day school. That is my only bad experience so far. It was a great year after that. She will be back in 14 days.
