St Matthew Elementary School Reviews
The experience at this school left my family traumatised. My Kindergartner was released to the wrong person and when confronted the staff was extremely unprofessional and offered NO apology. The illegal incident was chalked up by the principal as " a mis-communication". Frequent vermin infestations, power outages, extreme overcrowding (28 children in a VERY small classroom necessitating the lone teacher to conduct class using a microphone), funerals including caskets, hearses and mourners commenced during class hours in full view of the students (the children must walk around the hearse, casket and mingle with the mourners to enter the school) , horrific parking, constant and aggressive money begging, $20 field trips, more money begging, facility old and run-down, no separate restroom in the kindergarten classroom and more money begging. A truly horrific experience. Our kindergartner was removed after less than 3 months and commented during a trip home from his wonderful new school "St. Matthews was the worst". From the mouths of Babes.
