    "My child is new to Golbow. Communication is a HUGE problem. They do not look at at child's needs and the the whole picture of situations. Grades, communication & action all play a part on everyone to educate a child. Funny all the home work & studying is completed at home but my first grader is making poor grades due to class work?? My child has never had a discipline problem or poor grades. When i noticed comments about behavior so i called the teacher she never mentioned grades dropping significantly? The principal stated that there is no worry that a child's grades go down in everything by 4 points some even 10, really??? She's at Golbow less than 6mo and she has all "C, D, & F"! But the principal verbally told me he is sure that his teacher is not at fault "at all"! Wow? I'm backing my child and they are not going to drive her to failure!"

    "This is my child's second year at Golbow. His kindergarten teacher last year was overly rigid and overly focused on results instead of individuality, expecting little robots for students. We were constantly getting notes, from being silly with other students, to waving his arms in line - it was unreal, they were 5 years old! This year is not much better, though he does have an amazing first grade teacher who really cares. Most of the other teachers also seem to genuinely care and know all of the kids by name. The major problem is the administration. If you are an involved parent, be prepared for major disappointment. If your child has a learning difficulty be prepared for major disappointment AND frustration. They do not like to be questioned, they excel at double-talk, and are insanely unorganized. I actually had one of the principals insult me and tell me that if I didn't like the way things were done, then to find a new school."

    "When my kids started Golbow 2 yrs ago I was very disappointed . However last year when the new asst principals came in things have greatly improved. I really love Mrs Walker (one of the principals). She seems to know all the children and what's going on all the time. You can tell she genuinely cares and is trying very hard to get this school turned around. It has, by far, improved greatly over the past year."

    "This school has a very high turn over rate. Twenty-one teachers left this year! The teachers work really hard but seem tired and have a low moral. That might explain why so many of them leave every year. My child went just for this year and will not ever return. If you are looking for a house in this area, look some where else. There are other elementary schools in the area. If you are looking for a teaching position and are thinking about applying here.......well don't!!"

    "It's my opinion that this school desperately needs a new administration staff. The countless reports I have seen online about this principal have gone unnoticed by this district, and now I have had no choice but to withdrawal my child from this school. To this day, there have been no changes made and I will no longer allow my child to be in this environment. All parents moving into the neighborhood, please investigate and check out the background online of who this principal and her assistant principal really are. Remember, our children come first!"
