    "I am very frustrated that my daughter became sad and angry because I couldn't give her a big fundraiser check like the parents of her friends. The overemphasis on fundraising and using our kids as pawns to earn money for the school is very disturbing. Our kids should not be put in positions of earning prizes by who can get the most money. It is shocking that an educated community like ours at Tanglewood would allow this to continue. We need to put a stop to this destructive method of exploitation that has continued for too long at Tanglewood."

    "A sad truth that this school has no middle ground. Each child is labeled "winner or loser" depending on a single standardized test score. The focus on control and rigid scheduling has no opportunity for children to use their curiosity and imaginations for self discovery, which is the authentic way children learn. No opportunities for social and emotional connections of project based learning, since everything is teacher directed and the children work in isolation. The size and structure of this school is much too large, and causes children to be managed with rigid punitive methods and boring inflexible curriculum, rather than providing an environment of relaxed and inspirational learning that motivates children to love learning, and causes them to develop healthy self esteem. My overall perception of this school after two years is that it is more like a business than a school, where children survive by learning to cope with ongoing stress from fear of disappointing teachers and parents, rather than thriving and growing socially and emotionally. Adaptability, the best prediction of future success and learned via social and emotional development, is neglected in this school."

    "The curriculum maintains high standards but is dated, and there is WAY too much emphasis on testing. The social dynamics (particularly among the parents) are terrible. A group of insiders run the PTA, which emphasizes fundraising and excludes newcomers and minorities. In a city of great diversity, parents fight to maintain this school's exclusivity. Redistricting may be the only way to change things for the better."
