    "This is our second year at Guajome. My son just started 6th grade and really enjoys the middle school setting. My daughter started 5th grade coming from private school and loves her classmates and Mrs. MacVarish. Overall we are very satisfied. They do need a grass area for the kids to play on. Most areas are concrete."

    "This is our third year at Guajome and we are very happy here. My daughter has found good friends and most teachers are wonderful! They have no tolerance for bullying. The academics are wonderful here and they even have an IB-Program now. The school has been expanded to K-12, with elementary (K-5) wearing school uniform."

    "The previous review perfectly encapsulates the horrific student-to-student interactions that take place at Guajome Park Academy. Guajome is the stereotypical "clique" high school, on par with The Breakfast Club, only with less integration. Popular students at GPA understand the world on a purely impersonal and selfish level, taking only their feelings and actions into account without caring for the feelings of others. The outcasts do not deserved to be treated this way. I have been at Guajome Park Academy for five grades, 6-10 and am currently in my sophomore year. Between sixth and seventh grade I was severely bullied for my less-than-gregarious personality. After bursting out of my shell and attempting to make friends, I found myself still rejected for my above-average intelligence and loving, caring attitude I exhibited for everyone I met, regardless of their personality. I went ignored and I found myself friendless. No matter how hard I tried to get their attention, they constantly ignored me or ridicule me if I attempt to initiate a conversation. No one should have to go through something like that. Everyone is entitled to a chance at friendship: at Guajome, you won't get it."

    "This school is, honestly, one of the worst schools out there. The kids are so mean and they categorize you into different groups just by the way you dress or the way you look or what music you listen to. SOME of the teachers are good. BUT, a lot of the teachers assign way too much homework/projects at one time. I find myself, on a regular basis, doing homework at 1:00am or later. Then, I do not get enough sleep to stay awake during class the next day. I also get bullied a lot. Both verbally and physically. I find myself under great stress and depression by going to this school. Do NOT send your children to this school. It will only make life difficult for them."

    "My daughter is always a straight "A" student but for a new teacher to give her an "F" due to a one day late homework which she wasn't able to submit because she was pulled out early for a dental reason and was requested to be excused in unacceptable. Her test and other homeworks are perfectly fine. They even sent a letter for conference if the student is not doing well but then the teacher crossed out the option "does not need conference". For all I know if you gave a student an "F" would you at least call and talk to the parents about it? We emailed the teacher but never responded. They blame the system, well fix it. We were told that teachers are not going to remind students about their homework and are responsible in looking at the parent/student portal. Well guess what the parent/portal doesn't seem to be updated coz it shows my daughter is missing some homework even though she doesn't. She is new to the school and I'm not happy on what's going on."
