    "I am extremely pleased with the education that my children have received while at Cole Manor Elementary. We started attending Cole Manor in September 2012 and I have had nothing but positive interactions between myself and the Cole Manor Staff. My children have continued to test above average and read at levels that are 2 or 3 grade levels above what they are currently in. If there has been a problem or situation with my children I have been able to contact the teachers and speak with them about the situation. If a teacher has not been able to assist me I have been able to get in contact with the Lead teacher or the principal. I feel as though the school district gets a bad rep but my experiences have been and continue to be all positive. I know that there are a lot of parents that are happy with this school, I only wish more would speak up."

    "I feel that the teachers and counselors are more intersted in labeling children with ADHD to get more school funding than actually teaching - especially if the chi9ld is minority. My child was doing exceptionally well prior to transferring to Cole Manor, now I get phone calls for all sorts of ridiculous things that should be handled by the staff. I am actively looking to transfer my child out of this awful school."

    "As to my comment in April of 2012 and to the parent who commented on my grammer, If out of all of my comment that is all you focused on then shame on you. My daughter is now in a wonderful caring and attentive school district. My negative comment is supported by all the other negative ratings you see below. Now that I have experienced another district I can honestly say their is an overwhelming support from parents at her new school. Support with homework, projects, concerts, and after school events. Not one seat empty to support their children. This makes for a more positive atmosphere for staff. I work full time with other children to tend to and make an effort to do all I can to do my part with her education. I'm sure teachers respect this and are able to tend to the students more effectively when homework is done children are studying and parents monitoring the work that is being done. I see this in full effect at her new school. I can honestly saw I wish I saw this while she was at cole manor, for all the students sake."

    "Horrible staff. They state that the need for staff is the reason for scheduled bathroom breaks. Which means children are not allowed to go until that time. So a child has to program there bladder which can lead to health issues and the ability to not focus. The teachers where just there. They had no compassion for the children and very little patients. I met one teacher who showed a sense of love for the children he was instructing. It smelled like the bathrooms every time I visited. Which was often due to the disrespectful response of staff to my children. I was told that I am not suppose to trust my child. Yet the adults there because they are not able to lie. I was denied the ability to accompany my child on trips. My child was force to eat lunch even if it was not liked. If the lunch was not eaten my child was told not to eat snack. My child homework and absence notes where not being recorded by the teachers. During the hot days they would not allow students in to get a drink of water due to lake of staff. It was a very emotionally draining experience for my child. I was very upset by what I witnessed. It seemed more like they were preparing the students for jail than college"

    "In response to the most recent comment, I suggest to that parent that perhaps you are one of those parents that aren't involved. Who are you to make a generalized statement such as " how little parents actually care about their child's education"? You don't know me and I'm guessing you don't know most of the parents. You can't even write a full sentence or use proper grammar ("disappointment are"???) Obviously, there must be an issue with your child not succeeding. My children are learning and succeeding exceptionally well with the help of the talented teachers AND my support. Perhaps you should homeschool?"
