I am guilt-ridden every day for not seeing past the lies and deceit from the two "administrators" of this school. Please take the time to read each and every review that has been written. Well, with the exception of the few ones that were clearly written by the two administrators touting the school. If you know them, you know that those are their words.
If you send your children to this school, you can expect their days to be inconsistent, very little supervision, very little academic rigor. However, the philosophy of education that the administrators strongly adhere to one that revolves around yelling, belittling, and public humiliation.

The headmaster took young girls into a bathroom and screamed at them for locking a door mechanism. Now, you can be assured that the children won't be locked in the bathroom as there are no doors on stalls or doors to ensure privacy from the hallway.

The teachers despise the administration, which is why you won't see them back year after year. Teachers are not replaced. The administration steps in to teach the children. Or better yet, family members (high school and college) will teach for the day, week, month.

There is a reason there is a drop-off and pick-up line. They don't want parents to see the filth. The buildings are disgusting and the Department of Health has been called numerous times.

Sometimes, you even get to drop your child off with no power. But, communication is such that you find out at 3:30 p.m.

Best of luck to any parent if they continue to send their child here. Good luck with the anxiety you will feel every day leaving your child. Good luck navigating the lies that pour out of the mouth of administration. Good luck with the many health issues you will try to avoid. Good luck breaking your contract when you finally come to your senses. Good luck to you.

DO NOT send your child to this school!!!! The administrators are terrible and huge bullies! They come across as nice and before you know it they are bullying your child. As a person with high hopes it didn't take long for us to figure out that our child was being verbally tormented. I would rather have my child be in public school any day over this place! I am shocked they call themselves educators!!!! Good thing we figured it out before it was to late! I can't wait for the day they are in the news for negative treatment of children!!! If you care about your children stay away from this place!!!!!!!!
