*Author of original report: HORRIBLE school
My daughter's teacher would have the kids sit at their desk and do packets of work all day without any interaction with the students. She was a proctor, not a teacher. This is not the way to encourage kids about school nor keep them interested and motivated.
Nonetheless, I gave the required 30 day notice an enrolled my child in private school in Phoenix. Had I known the owner was also a liar and a thief, I would have never paid my duaghter's tuition for the last month. The owner did not refund us the remaining portion of the tuition nor the $425 of prepaid tuition for a total of $500!
This, I've now found out, is not an isolated incident. One poor family had FOUR kids enrolled in the school and puller their children out for the same reasons. They were stiffed for alost 4 times as much money. We also later found out that one of the teachers left as well because she did not approve of the the owner's business and ethical practices.
The onwer does not return phone calls and threatens to call the cops when confronted in person about paying us our money.
Stay away from this school! Your children's education is too valuable! Not to mention your hard earned money!
