Sessions Elementary School Reviews
It's really hard to get an honest, direct answer from the current principal. Unless, of course, the discussion is about the IB program, which seems to be her primary area of interest and expertise.
Our experience with this school has not been good. The teachers seem qualified enough, but our so overburdened by the aggressive principal, that learning is not fun at this school. My kids don't enjoy the school, and we are going to choice out next year. I feel that a change of leadership is in dire need.
