    "My kids have been attending this school since they close down tamarisk. I've had little issues but nothing serious. This year was different though my 5th grade daughter has Mr.Hauptman. in my opinion he's a great teacher since the beginning of the year I knew he was great . Also little issues I had with meals Mr.Morales immediately took care of it. Over waa ll im pleased with tumbleweed."

    "My now 7th grader attended Tumbleweed K-6th grade as well as is sibling who is still attending. I never had a problem with any teachers but always felt as if the principals were always at conflict with each other, which affected the whole school. The old principals were replaced 2 years ago, and the new principals have shown excellent leadership, cooperation with staff as well as being magnificent problem solvers. They truly care for the state of the school as well as the students. In response to the parent who has a problem with your nephews teacher.... my children have never been a problem in the classroom, yet other children are very distracting and inhibit the teachers ability to teach as well as the other students ability to learn. Instead of taking your nephews word at face value, investigate and have a conference. It has been my experience that many times when the same child continually has problems with all of their teachers, it isn't the teachers, it's the student."

    "my daughters both attended Tumbleweed from kinder to 6th grade. My nephew now attends this school for fifth grade and I am not happy with his teacher. Yes, my nephew can be a handful but i feel that she has labeled him a trouble maker and is constantly harassing him over minor things. If a note is passed to him in class he gets in trouble for accepting it. If he is trying to do his work and is being disturbed by other students and he tells them to leave him alone, he gets in trouble for disrespecting his classmates. Teachers are not what they used to be at this school."

    "I used to be a student at Tumbleweed Elementary. I attended 1996 to 1998 and frankly I'm shocked at everyone's negativity towards them. I do feel it is the Principal and Vice-Principal's fault but it wasn't like that when I went there. The staff was always caring, the curricular challenging yet fun, and a wonderful student to teacher ratio. If any of you aren't satisfied with Tumbleweed, take it to the office...if you're not satisfied, than go to the Education Board."

    "Tumbleweed School has recently had a complete overhauling of staff, including an almost completely new set of teachers, so I feel a more recent and accurate review is due. Since September of 2010, Tumbleweed's teachers, administration and staff have been working overtime to turn around the negative culture of the school and unmotivated attitudes of the students. This change was hard for some people to understand and some parents even took their children out of the school because the expectations were "too high". However, the 92 point growth on the last CST put Tumbleweed on the map and now it seems that high expectations are just what this persistently low achieving school needed! A staff full of dedicated and hard working individuals who believe in their students has moved this school in a whole new direction. Congrats Tumbleweed, and keep up the hard work! Our kids need all of us!"
