If I could use a lower rating I would.
My son has been in need of testing for possible special education purposes and this SCHOOL FORGOT ABOUT HIM!!
Please, if you have concerns for your child and may need a little extra help, do not confide in this school. My son had been scheduled 2 years ago and they pulled me in for “behavior” issues. At this meeting I asked for the paper I had already signed to start testing and what were the results? The entire staff looked at each other in confusion. An employee at the school went into the files and found the paper that had been signed back in the 3rd grade. My son is in 5th this year. If I may quote his words, “ The energy felt very negative and my teacher is angry and yelling all the time.”
Take your babies to another school.
Thank you.
