Mad about the lies

I am so disappointed as to how many people say these horrible things about HSK. I actually know the school better than anyone out here and I will say that it is a lovely school. I know this is a complaint website, and I'm not complaining about the school, but these reviewers. I am especially annoyed about the lies about the owner, Sarah. She is amazing, kind, caring, and is not a witch or unjust as a principal, but a very wonderful lady. I'm surprised nobody else has complained about the lies on this website,but I hope that there will be many more in the future.

Owner lied to the parents and the staff

Where to start! Owner--Has cash flow issues, Sarah has spent fundraiser money on anything other than the school (and admitted to it). Serves up frozen food although we pay for Whole Foods Delivery, divies up the food portions-so if you child is smaller they will be served 1/2 of the portion and if your child is bigger they may get the smaller childs leftovers. Summer comes and the curriculum falls. I knew something was up when everyday my son would come home with more than usual artwork. a TON of labor issues which you can call & find out what she has been cited for--rats, hanging nets which can strangle the kids, the sleeping mats-she has been cited for. Sarah also gave a "new hire" $20 to go into the infant room--even though she hadn't been officialy cleared and told her to keep quiet. Sarah has either fired or pushed out some amazing teachers-who spoke up when A). they were paid late B.) gave her their concerns about the school issues C.) Spoke up when things were array! The sand in the sandbox has not been replaced since the opening of the school--and they found a "coke" pipe in the sand--the school is built up against an apartment complex and the police have agreed that there are a ton of issues with that building. Sarah goes on & on how the teachers (most) are director certified yet she doesn't use them for that. She herself who isn't certified does the whole curriculum (which if you tour Kids Klub you will see the curriculum is a lot alike) she has obviously toured those schools and has tried to copy it, but with no luck in succeeding due to her lack of knowledge on how to run a school. She has also unsolicited btw... told one of the parents that she thought her son was ADD! Can you imagine having some emotional whack job tell you that your 3 yr old had ADD--I would have slapped her in the face had that been my son she was talking about--she needs to look at herself and get some serious help before she speaks out like that! She also likes to tell her about her relationship & "relations" with her Ex--so inappropriate. Plain and simple HSK should not be open and its probably a matter of time before the school does get shut down either by all the violations and/or because she has no money left. If you were to just take a step back and look how the school is running you will be able to see every single issue in the system--and you wouldn't enroll your child there. I had warning signs and one morning rather than leaving I thought I should watch for things--and sure enough i saw it and withdrew our child from HSK--you shouldn't think twice about this place--run like *** to the next school you will be happy you did!

This is SOOOO much B.S.! The apartment building they mention (to show just one lie!) is a high-end, near new complex built by the Metro station.

A two bedroom is over $3,000 a month. What a slum!

Must be filled with real bad people.

I think YOU are the past staff member with an axe to grind. Grow up!
