Not very good when your child is bullied by a teacher!!!
I think it is the worst school I have sent my kid to and I do not like the principal because she do nothing. I really give it no stars. I am pulling my kid out
Music teacher generally hates children, as well as many others working there. Don't teach if you don't like kids.
I really wish there was the option of giving this dreadful school no stars. This is absolutely the worst school I have ever seen in the past 19 years of putting my kids through school. The staff is very mean, the teachers are unfriendly and just throw worksheets and homework at the children with little interaction. Did I mention the putrid treatment of minorities? Well my child and many others have faced prejudice due to their race or religion. Even when I came to the school for awards or simply picking up my child, the staff kind of looked at me unequally and acted awkwardly around me. Their cafeteria staff is also quite impolite. Instead of immediately notifying me that my child's account was low, they would allow the money owed to build and harass or yell at my child about it; a staffer even sent home a letter saying, "You need to enroll your child in free lunch." This school is quite unsafe because my daughter was never Id'd when dismissing my child early. A teacher even told me that it was a "redneck school." Thus, minorities don't belong. All in all, this is a horrible school! If you are assigned to this school for your child, you are better off doing school choice and driving them how far it takes to get there. The mental and emotional wounds on your child should matter more than the commute. My child goes to Deep Creek now and all I can say is the Cubs rule!
