completely baffled at the lack of competence and disregard to the real issues that any public school will face and the willingness to turn the blind eye to the abuse and the lack of proper education that most of there students receive...

A traumatic and disappointing experience. Another federally funded program which is failing but they do their best to show on paper "good" results. The staff promoted endangerment and eloping of my child. They failed to provide nurturing and safe environment for my son. Neglected him academically and socially. They are very passive during IEP meetings and do their best not to develop any academic or integration plans on paper for each child individually. They are just putting vulnerable kids on a 3 years isolation plan without progress or support, many of those kids could be integrated partially from the start. Lacking so many things, and mainly education and training or even motivation to help local families. They think they are doing you a service for "watching" your kids during the day. That is it.

My son loves the STEM project learning and after school care programs. The maker space, science room and music lessons are the main reasons why he attends this school. I wish they had an art room with a dedicated art teacher, too!

My son has ADHD, and was denied an IEP. Mrs. Hodge said he was "too smart" for one, as if an IEP had something to do with intelligence! She proceeded to comment that ADHD isn't even real, and that it's a "behavioral problem!" My child was segregated from his peers and kept in another room like an animal! They frequently "forgot" his medication, then blamed him for misbehaving. A terrible principle, and an awful school.
