    "Imagine Charter School at Firestone is an Amazing school! Everyone at this school cares about the students from the Teachers to the Administrators. The principals can call every student by name. There are no problem children at this school, they have ways to work with every student regardless of what problems they had at previous schools. There is a huge amount of parent involvement from volunteering to committees. I know my children's friends and I know exactly what is going on in the classroom. My children are challenged according to their appropriate levels. I urge any parent with a child repeating a grade to choose this school. My eldest is repeating 1st grade for various reasons and the overwhelming support shown to him has been amazing. The transition has been seamless. There have been zero instances of bullying from the kids who moved on, in fact, now he just has friends in two grades. There is no stigma here for kids needing to repeat. My children also receive personal one on one instruction, as well as small groups and classroom instruction. This is a school that prepares children for real life, developing morals and character as well as a superior education."

    "If you are looking for a school that actually helps and cares about your child, this is not the school for you. Yes, they have "higher test scores" than some of the other area schools. This is because they will not help the children that need extra help and force them to leave. My children were great students with high test scores, but I have seen so many that are frustrated and leave because their child needs a little extra help and the school will NOT provide. You are pushed off for months. Also, the bullying policy is a joke. It took 4 times of talking to a leadership member and still nothing happened (although they tell you it is being taken care of, they just cant tell you what is happening for confidentiality reasons) If you like military style teaching where kids are not allowed to talk during lunch, how many rivets are on your childs pants matter, or what color your childs socks are sign up now. I understand there is a dress code but I don't understand how the color of socks can be a distraction. The expectations are a little extreme and there is no consistency with ANYTHING (from dress code, to rules, to teachers--the turnover is unbelievable) Communication lacks."

    "There is zero leadership at the school, the turnover is atrocious, and the Dean of Students has told parents there are no school wide policies that will be enforced because of the lack of leadership. Her words regarding bullying were 'each teacher has their own policies for their own classroom because of the leadership, they will remain autonomous, so there will be no school wide anti-bullying policy.' Many families have left over the years because they do nothing for student to student relations or bullying. If your student is average, they will probably do fine but if they are behind or advanced, they will be lost in the incompetent mix of average leaders. Many of the teachers are wonderful, but the school has yet to find its place and probably won't until leadership changed - again."

    "We stumbled upon Imagine Firestone purely by chance. We toured the school and it had a welcoming environment from the moment you walk through the doors. Lots of smiles from various people and the front office staff is actually friendly (unlike most schools we have been in). My son had a heartbreaking start at another school within the district which prompted us to check out this school. After touring and visiting with staff, we transitioned him into this school. He is now thriving! He loves his classmates, his teacher is kind and the school still feels welcoming. We drive 30+ minutes everyday for my son to attend this school. There are struggles for the school such as not having any athletics for the middle school and the traffic around the school is terrible! I feel sorry for the new neighborhood that has to share the area with the school! It is manageable if you are willing to be patient dropping off and picking up your kid or if you park a few blocks away."

    "Imagine is a good school following core knowledge and fostering a culture of respect and dedication in their students. The teachers are dedicated and enthusiastic in their roles in guiding their students to succeed. Imagine needs a new principal for Imagine to excel. A principal who shows a dedication and interest in Imagine and its teachers/students/parents."
