    "Fletcher Elementary is on the road to success, being lead strongly by the new Principal Ms. Nelson. Her passion for student success is evident in her support of the school's MIP. Parents come be a part of this change .. the PTA is waiting and wanting to do more for these kids they deserve it they are the future."

    "We have enrolled our child in the Mandarin Immersion Program and the teachers and principal have gone above and beyond our expectiations. The staff at Fletcher is committed and conduct monthly meetings to update the parents and they are very responsive to our needs and concerns. For example, I sent an email with a serious concern to the principal and teacher and they responds in less than 12 hours and called me personally to address my concern. It is not easy for one teacher to teach 20 something kids and I don't expect the teacher to be able to tailor the education for my child or give one to one attention to my child. So, I am supplementig him at home with additional work books. This is a team effort and the teacher and I communicate regularly. I love how the school has a superbuck/ rewardi system where the kids get these superbucks for good behavior and on certain Fridays, they get to go to the superbuck store to get prizes. That is an excellant idea that we have adopted at home. I have nothing but high regards for the MIP teachers and principal at Fletcher. Just wait and watch. Those state scores are going to soar!"

    "We looked at many public and private schools before deciding on Fletcher, namely for the Mandarin Immersion Program. It was the best educational decision we have made for our child. Our experience so far has only been positive. The teachers and staff are wonderful and we've been very impressed with the new principal, Mrs. Nelson. The school was modernized over the summer with SMART boards in every classroom and new computers in the computer lab. The PTA has a strong membership this year filled with very active and engaged parents who want to see this school succeed. As for the MIP program, it is an understatement to say that we are impressed with the program and teachers. We consider this program a gift for our child and the ability to speak Mandarin as an incredibly useful tool for our global society and economy. Our child enjoys school so much that Fridays are are worst day of the week and Mondays are the happiest. Fletcher is not the same school that past reviewers have negatively described. This school is clearly thriving and growing in a very positive direction and we're happy to be a part of the process."

    "This school continues to decline. There are teachers there who do nothing but yell at the kids. The teachers dole out discipline unfairly and unevenly, playing favorites with the kids of "good" parents and targeting the kids with "bad" parents. My sons friend son was targeted for having designs carved into his hair because it was "distracting" but no one says anything to the kids with the Mohawks and rooster comb hair cuts. Teachers are not there on time, kids are left unsupervised on the playground until their teacher decides to show up. When I stop by in the morning to meet with his teacher at 7:30AM, she doesn't bother show up until 8:00AM even though she is supposed to be at work at 7:30AM. My son also says that the teachers don't supervise the playground and it is very scary how rough the kids get. My child told me that his teacher never picks them up on time from recess or lunch. I think the only goal of the teachers and principal here is to ignore their responsibilities and build their own egos by bullying kids and parents as much as possible. No wonder the kids aren't learning and no one wants to join the PTA or have their kid go there. On to private school."

    "It's a new school years !! Fletcher is a fine public school . All those complaining need to stop . If your not pleased leave .. You have that option . Hopefully your children are given the needed TLC you feel they weren't given or aren't give by you . People also need stop depending on teachers to do every single thing for your child. Is 30 minutes day of ready set aside at home .I'm a parent and I have found the time help my children with their homework , have donated my time in the classroom to help their classmates . And twice a year I've donated cleaning and classroom supplies for my children's classroom . If my children were to dislike their school lunches I plan to brown bag their lunch. It's my own responsibility as a parent . As for test schools Fletcher is slowly and surely rising up.. Lets not forget its not just in the classroom. At home learning is the key .. Purchasing workbooks or downloading free worksheets to help with it.. Fletcher is a fine school thats little in enrollment cause of gossip and fear. But ,it's improving and it's staff is doing the best with what they've got thanks to mis-management in Sacramento & Capital Hill. Don't fear it . Fletcher's fine."
