    "Lunch is served so early you can still order from the breakfast menu from the fast food joints. What makes that so bad is that there are teachers that will not allow the students to have snack time. That's a long time to go without food. When i was a kid, i think that was illegal. 4 hrs tops. Teachers are too well guarded. Can't sit in on a class. I have never heard of that. 2 teachers in particular have nothing about their attitude that says they love children. You can meet with the principle easily but you can't see your child's class live in person. What are they hiding? They aren't scared to send home we need money material though. So my kid is beyond starving by the time schools out. Teachers need days notice to only schedule after school meetings. I'm gonna donate money? Knock it off. After care is another money scam. Too much. If you only need before care you still have to pay for both. Best thing about school is the front office staff. Downhill from there."

    "Dreadful, horrible school! Keep your kids away, if you value their love of learning and your sanity. It's impossible to find out necessary information or get a straight answer from anyone in this place about even the most basic questions."

    "My daughter has been in is this school for about 6 months now and I am beyond disappointed in the experience. It is impossible to speak with either teachers or staff, they isolate themselves beyond a layer of low level, rude and disrespectful "helpers". The teachers never come forward with the students, and do not make themselves available to interact with the parents. It is impossible to get a simple return phone call from the administration. The only thing my daughter has actually learned this year is how to take the leap test. There is no interest in teaching for understanding, which would lead to better leap scores by default, just rote memorization of leap practice material. We are giving serious consideration to homeschooling after this experience. Just yesterday I found out that my daughter's teacher has been basically bribing the students into behaving with sugary snacks - which we were not notified would be given and were not given the option to approve or disapprove, yet parents are not allowed to send such foods for snacks as they are disallowed by the school handbook. I have never had a positive interaction here and my daughter's education is suffering to boot!"

    "I'm a certified substitute teacher so I go to different schools & OMG I told them in the office never to call me again to sub for their teachers there ever again. The kids are very rough, I had kids throwing desks at me, (2nd graders) no respect for authority or adults. They don't respect their teachers so how will they respect the subs. Absolutely chaotic. The teachers are there for the paychecks they look worn out. They don't even ask if we (subs) need anything like at other schools. The teachers are rude & act as if they don't want to be there, I just heard yelling & yelling from class to class. It was the worst experience ever. I feel bad for students that are wanting to learn! Don't send your children to Abney! Scary & I'm an adult! Seriously I'm 100 percent serious. Never again will I sub there!!!!!"

    "I have only been involved with the school for a little over a month and I am extremely disappointed with it. We moved here over the summer and everyone told me not to send my kids to this school, but I ignored it since I thought I would try to support the public school system. I'm not sure how much longer I will give it before looking into other options. It's disorganized, my son is afraid of his teacher, the crossing guard in front the the school is so rude I can't even believe it. I actually worry about my kids every day that they go there. Not a good feeling."
