1. What the director is missing in brains, she makes up for in blind optimism.
2. The assistant director lacks the ability to type, or even complete a full sentence. Notices sent home and to staff are spelled incorrectly, and with poor grammar.
3.On more than one occasion, my children have come home saying that the K-2 aid has physically grabbed, snatched, or popped them. Upon the director hearing about this, the K-2 aid denied any wrong doings, and was allowed to continue working with the children.
4. Another K-2 teacher was caught manhandling the children, and will admit to doing so, and was simply moved to the kitchen.
5. The school is not making enough to pay basic maintenance bills, and so took money from the bus fund (that parents paid), making it impossible for K-4 to finish out the years field trips.
6.Last years Spanish teacher often got help from a kindergartner because she didn't actually know Spanish.
7.Tech lab was not up most of the year, even though it was promised in the curriculum that the parents paid for.
8. 3 of the academy teachers last year did not have teaching degrees, 2 of them had no degrees at all.
9.There are rodents dead in the walls
10.The water fountains are broken. One of the K-3 teachers will instruct children to go to the bathroom, and get water from the sink with just their hands.
11. The administration gossip about the parents and who does and does not pay their bills.
12.The director told a 2 year old who pulled down another 2 year old's pants, that he should wait for marriage to do those kinds of things.
13.The teacher's are expected to buy everything for their classes on their own.
14. Everything from the first two reviews is absolutely true. As a parent, and employee, I would agree wholeheartedly. Take your children and run!

Pros: Children will learn about God

Cons: From hypocritical, immoral staff

I had a sit down with the director to discuss things that I've seen in the short time we were enrolled.
1) the day we visited to check out the facility.
-seemed wonderful, happy kids- they were in the middle of a last day of school fair
-1 small red flag was a teacher that turned to a boy throwing paper & said "you better stop it or I'm gonna beat choo up." She was smiling but it was inappropriate to say to a 4 year old. I figured it was her personality & she may be a sweet person. The kids seemed to like her. I did see another issue with her though: I heard her say "ya'll better shut up."
2) there are several middle eastern kids in the class. They're ignored on the playground. On several occasions I've put a little girl onto a swing as she is left to do it herself. When the kids are lined up they are noticelably treated like a nuisance. Specific Ex: The older of the 2 teachers introduced a withdrawn little boy to the other one saying this is "X" he's a problem, he likes to strike people. She embarrassed him in front of 17 kids & roughly pushed him to the back of the line. The kid doesn't get a chance to have a fresh start to the day.
3) Saw this teacher have a mini melt down at a H2O fountain & yell at the "stupid thing" in front of the kids
Director told me that she would likely begin the process of moving the older teacher back to the 3 yo, her prior position. She suggested her forte may be in the younger age group. It was encouraging that the director was willing to discuss this. I do wonder what is being said & done when there are no parents around.
