    When I went to the Open House I was COMPLETELY sold on this school! The principal gave us a tour and it seemed excellent. That is until the school year started. My son is a pre-schooler (3year old) and I must admit that I am COMPLETELY UNSATISFIED with the school. He has learned a lot of new things; however the staff (i.e main office) is the WORST! They always seem to be unorganized. Every week they are sending home a letter asking for $$ for this or that. There isnt any school security and the "concierge" person that they have is just RUDE & GHETTO! I would NOT recommend sending any child to this school!!!
