      salam aleykom, people in the school are weird quigley just walks in the classrooms when he wants and distracts the learning of children because he feels that school rules are more important than learning. Teachers are not qualified at all and were all maids and cleaners in the past life and the cafeteria food gives my kids diarrhoea every day. final point dont send your kids to this zoo.
