    "I am absolutely appalled with the principal's lack of concern in trying to help my child. He should have been held back a grade and when I expressed my wishes to have him pulled back she said that she can't and she won't. I even went to the district and they said it was policy to never hold back a child. The only saving grace for this school is Mrs. Cathy Flores. She tries to work with my son and get him on track."

    "We want Ms Corona stay back to teach Kindergaden at Meyer Elementary for the school year of 2012-2013. She is the best teacher and we need teacher like her who encoureage students to love school. We will have our parent petition signed ready to submit to whom making decision of moving her away from Meyer Elementary. We, parent, tax payer who are living in Alum Rock district strongly belive that Ms. Corona is the best teacher. Kindergarden is the first step that will inplant the kid mind with how exciting and fun school be. It is very importance to have first impression about school in a positive way and Ms CORONA have that ability to make it happen to our children. Please, who ever making the decision of moving her away from Meyer Elementary, We want her, do not take her away from our kid."

    "I am not pleased at all with this school, everything is last minute there. Menus are given late,P.T.A. meetings canceled late ,vacation schedules are given a week into that month ,instead of the month prier too. Also there has been profanity written inside the kids slide for months,parents on my street all heard about it for a while now. We asked our children if they told yard duty teachers , they all said 'YES' so one of the parents stated they took it upon them self to paint over it themselves, so elementary kids don't have to be subject to profanity ! I never once saw a " teacher" in the "Parent Teacher Assoc."meetings, which says a lot right there..Most of the staff is at retirement age,lets wake up our community !"

    "I am a parent and have 2 children currently attending Meyer. I think it's an excellent school and have no issues with the no parents being beyond the quad area. I believe everyone is entitled to their own opiion, The SCHOOL IS NOT GOING DOWN HILL apparently the parent before has ISSUES WITH THE PRICIPAL.AND TEACHERS. ****THE TEACHERS AND PRICIPAL GO ABOVE AND BEYOND TO HELP THE CHILDREN****GOOD JOB!"

    "My oldest son did his 6 grade elem. Yr. At Meyer and all I got was a lot of discouragement and neg. Comments. He would have big packages of hmw weekly, in summer, and vaca. Time. My 2nd son did kinder there and the principal has this new meeting on were they write up your kids as problem children and the meeting made up of every grade teachers who don't know your kids. All they do is target your child. She got this rule on how parents are not allowd on the quad. Kids don't get to play until 7:50 and school open from 7:30. The kids need to wait by the cafeteria until 7:50. The teacher are unhappy too. They're pushed to teach grd. Level they don't want. Many have left already. This school is going down hill because of the principal."
