Today's Fresh Start Charter School Reviews

horrible and unethical

By a Parent on

I heard about this charter school and decided to enroll my son, since day one I had issues with the person who is in charge of admissions. I turned in my enrollment packet and he asked me for additional information about my son's history ....This man had me going back and forth getting all sorts of information that he supposed needed..When I finally got the letter for orientation I attended and this man approached me and with a very rude attitude he told me that I was not getting the on board paper until he got what he needed...The following day I called and spoke to another person and now they are telling me that my son will be on waiting list after that fact that they sent me the letter that confirms a spot for my son...I was very upset because I took my son out from his previous school and because of their lack of communication now my son has no school..This charter school is garbage and the orientation was a waste of time..they only talk about what they expect from parents but never took the time to let us parents know what today's fresh start was all about...did I mention the orientation was only 1 hr long...and all I heard was them telling us exactly what their handbook says...I will never recommend this school. .classrooms are dirty and staff is very unprofessional. Good luck to every child that is attending there because they couldn't even answer a parents question about what we're their procedures were incase of a emergency. .they just stayed quiet. ..unbelievable !!!
