THIS SCHOOL IS VERY VERY LOW CLASS. THE TEACHER AID S ARE VERY DISRESPECTFUL TO CHILDREN AND PARENTS. I HAVE SOME OF THE MOST DISRESPECT THING'S SAID TO ME IT WAS UNREAL. WHEN I NOTIFIED THE DIRECTOR ON THINGS THAT WAS GOING ON SHE WOULD SAY OK I'M GOING TO HAVE A TALK WITH MY STAFF. BUT STILL IN ALL THE SAME THING WAS HAPPENING OVER AND OVER AGAIN. SHE SEEM TO HAVE A PROBLEM KEEPING HER STAFF ON A PROFESSIONAL LEVER IT WAS UNREAL. AS WELL AS ALL AGE GROUP OF KIDS ARE IN 1 CLASS ROOM. PLEASE DON'T SEND YOUR KIDS HERE, SO MANY RED FLAGS
This school is very low in class. The aides my child had were very unprofessional and careless. As I almost dislike using this term, some of the staff was ignorant and spoke disrespectful language. Most of these aides appear to have little training in childcare and awful manners. I witnessed on more than one occasion an aide being rude and inappropriate with a child and parent. The class of the teachers/aide can be described as "low rent". A cheap collection of staff members put in place to "babysit" NOT educate. This would explain the low cost...you get what you pay for and it's not quality. A very few of the teachers are ok (the more mature adults), but the bad apples seem to outweigh the good. Parents, do your homework on checking this school out thoroughly, I learned the hard way. Most importantly, get references.
I was very leary about this school when my son first started at the age of 4, but I have to say that my son learned so much during the 1 year he was there. I am still astounded! My son was more than prepared to enter kindergarten. He is in kindergarten at his home school now and his teacher and I both are so impressed with his level in reading in math. I could easily take credit for this, but I certainly know it wasn't me (went through a rough time in my life divorce/move and did not put in the time that I should have). I am now working with him more at home because I don't think he is being challenged enough at his home school...he already knows his stuff and I owe it all to the teachers and staff (ie Ms. Darlene and Ms. Tanya) at HMS!
