Parents discouraged from entering building. Found out why!

Good: I loved the story they sold me when I toured the place, and I liked that other parents seemed to love the school. That is until I found out that most parents never set foot in the building because we were encouraged to stay in our cars -- our children would be escorted in by staff. Well, I got out of my car twice a day and found out why. The school is a dismal place and sadly most of the parents have no idea because we are told one thing and the reality is quite a different matter.. Bad: Children are meant to be afraid, this is the belief of the Vice Principal, so that they will stay in control. When a child is violent and out of control (there was one such child in my son's class) nothing is done about the repeated injuries to other children because they were afraid of losing tuition. My son used to love school, until we sent him to Evergreen. Then he would cry on the way there, come home bruised by the violent child, and talk about how he was afraid of the vice principal.. Improvements: The could start with sacking the vice principal for her astonishing disrespect of the children. Besides prefering them to be afraid she decreed that all classrooms must eat their lunch in the dark by candle light and the children must only whisper if they need to talk at all. Parents are told never to contact the teacher about our children, that the administration is their "voice mail." Might consider training the Principal in early childhood education. Her previous job a year ago was MaryKay salesman.. Other: Run! This school is a sinking ship and they will tell you whatever they think you want to hear to get your money. Teachers and families come and go quickly from this school and there are more reasons why then I can say in this review..
