    This school is a horrible school. Nothing is done right. The staff is terrible and there is a lot of politics and drama among the staff and teachers and head of school including the principle and superintendent.

    My daughter has gone to The Montessori School before moving to this location and had no problems. Starting off at this school I have noticed that the teacher doesn't have a strong lesson plan and doesn't work hard on bring out the best that the child can be. I'm concerned I will have to transfer my daughter to a different school because they don't know how to involve her and get her motivated. I try to talk with the principal to see what can be done and I have yet to see the involvement. Also they are very bad at keeping the parents informed on whats coming up threw out the week. I am a very involved parent and take my daughters school events and performance at school work serious.
