    "I find it odd that the last review gave no specific details to what his/her problem was. My kids have been going to the school for the last 5 years. I have had nothing but positive things to say about the dedicated teachers on staff and the Principal. I have seen the school grow in what they offer in curriculum and activities and how they handle different situations as the area continues to grow. Sadly, I have seen some horrific parents and students come through the school as well and that makes the school's job even more difficult. I have nothing but good things to say about Festival Foothills and I think some of the negative comments come from personal agendas or experiences that does not reflect the school as a whole. I stood behind the school and staff 5 years ago and I continue to do so today. Any concerns that I have ever had was immediatley addressed by a teacher or the Prinicipal and I am always encouraged to come in at anytime to talk. This is a fantastic school with a fantastic staff. Those with the negative comments and experiences should, if they have not already, remove the student/s and place them in another school. Then let's see how schools compare."

    "If I could give this school a zero star rating I would. Don't be fooled as I did. Someone warned me about it but I wanted to see for myself and they were right. My kids had to pay for my mistake. All I will say is that it didn't have anything to do with church and school."

    "I have to disagree 100% with the comments from the July 27th post. There are parents in this community who wind up with a bee in their bonnet and trash EVERYTHING because they did not get their way. If Festival is not working for you....then exercise your option to remove your child. As for me and my family.....we love, love, love Festival Foothills!!! My family stands behind the school, the teachers and the Principal. The comments from the July post screams of a personal attack instead of constructive criticism. No one cares that the church is renting space or who the Principal is married to. You act like this is a conspiracy to take over Buckeye. Those line have never crossed the entire time we have lived here. This is a small community and we are fortunate to reap the benefit of having the church here. I would bet my life that this same parent has attended most of the events put on by the church too. So, I do not place much value on the comments made in the July 27th post or even the October 8th post."

    "I would disagree.I am only assuming that they are made out of jealousy or nastiness because they don't happen to feel as if "they" fit in. I've had my kids at other schools & all schools have a church rent space,whats the problem? They don't preach in the classroom. So you condemn a school because the community has a church there for them?Good for that church for activities to a very small area. Would you rather the kids be bored & have no youth activities,get off your high horse, leave people alone, stick your nose back where it belongs. For the school, it does a great job with the kids, my kids past schools have been the teachers don't stay after to tutor ,make sure the kids are succeeding or don't stay after school to play with kids,or the staff point fingers at the kids and don't openly talk to kids. My experience with THIS school has been great,always a couple rotten apples(parents that point fingers)in the bunch that try to ruin a good thing. Maybe those parents should be letting their kids grow,see diversity. There the ones who don't want it any other way but theirs. Festival Foothills is still # 1 in my book & from what I hear in the neighborhood most everyone else's too."

    "When this school first opened it was a fantastic small school. When the new Principle took over a few years ago the school went down hill fast! Most of the incredible teaching staff is gone and the school is very unorganized. The best thing I have ever done is remove my children along with a lot of other parents . I agree with almost everything that was written from the July post. I do not recommend sending your children to this school."
