My children love SCA we've been at this school for 7 years. I see all these negative comments and I want to clarify that the schools director and principal are no longer at this school. They have left a very negative impression of our school. The teachers deserve more than this, they're loving, caring and devoted to the students. I know all the teachers at this school and I can honestly say this about each one of them. I was there when the drama with the director occured, but she is gone now. My daughter attends prek at this school with the new teachers. My daughter writes her name, she knows numbers, letters and is reading three letter words. She loves her teacher and can't wait to go to school everyday. God Bless our teachers at SCA!!!
My daughter went to PreK-4 at this school. Since she started, she was getting sick once or twice a month every month (August-January), to the point of her doctor ordering for her to have an adenoidectomy and BMT done. I gave the teacher a doctor's order for my daughter not to play in the playground until specified, and to my surprise, I see her running around the playground when I picked her up. I asked this teacher if she had read the note and she told me she didn't. Then, I told her there was a doctor's order for my daughter not to play in the playground until specified. It was obvious that this woman had not paid attention to the note because every time I picked her up, I found her running around. I asked my daughter why was she not paying attention to this teacher and she told me that the teacher would tell her to go and play. The worst part was when my daughter told me that this supposedly professional woman was talking to the teacher's assistant making fun of me and saying how much she disliked me in the classroom, while my daughter and her friends were listening. My daughter felt horrible listening to this. I told two moms that I have become close with, and two other moms about the teacher blatantly ignoring the doctor's note. Someone must have said something negative to the Director, Janet Moss, because she became very defensive when I spoke to her about it. Somehow, the doctor's note I gave the teacher disappeared, even though this was a note that was turned in to cover her absence in addition to the order not to play in the playground, so I went to my doctor to get another one. The doctor does not file copies of the original so she had to write a new one specifying that date. This was not permissible to Director Moss, making me and my doctor look like liars. I told her that from this experience, I would have the teacher make me a copy after it was signed with the date on it, and she replied to me that I should give all the notes to both the administrative office and the teacher. I grew up and went to school here and never had to do that in my life. Isn't it the teacher's job to follow doctor's order in the first place. Where did this teacher get her Bachelors Degree. If you decide to choose this school for your preschooler, make sure you ask them questions about the teacher and what she says in the classroom about the parents, the principal and to the children, (she would tell my daughter that she did not like her job because it was bad). Also, check the bathrooms, especially the little toilet they have where they teach the preschoolers, the building where the pre-K playground is close to. That bathroom is dirty most of the time and they don't clean it often. They tell the kids to use it anyways even if it's dirty. Some kids got sick from that. It is obvious that there is a sanitation problem and nothing is being done for it. My daughter started school at The CLC and she has not gotten sick for over a month. This is a great relief for me because I know that if she would have stayed at SCA, she would have continued to be sick. Plus, the doctor decided not to go through the procedure and wait for now. What I also noticed is that her attitude has changed, she looks and acts so happy now and it's all because we got out of that school.
