    "Pros: - Smaller class size - Great PTA involvement and leadership Cons: - No textbooks; use of "Beyond Textbooks" program and parents are told to look up instructions on the internet if they're having trouble helping children with school work. No additional instructional papers or books given. Look at the past few years test scores - they speak for themselves. - Nice teachers but most are either retiring or using this school as a stepping stone. Case in point: All three middle school teachers left after this school year. All new teachers next year, including one who's quit/retired several times from this school already. Look at the 6th grade Math scores for this past year, the scores speak for themselves. - No separation of church and state here. A church rents a large portion of this school. They advertise during school hours and park a huge church trailer outside the cafeteria. The Principal is the pastor's wife and the District Superintendent is a member. Church members are consistently favored for jobs at the school (teachers/aides) and for the district (grounds maintenance). There is a very clickish environment here, church members vs. outsiders. It's very disconcerting."

    "Deceiving....What I thought was a great school turned out to be a complete disappointment. When serious student issues arise at this school, the principal nor superintendent, based on my experience, do absolutely nothing about it. Feels like everything gets swept under the rug. Also, very concerning are the multiple references toward highly inappropriate faculty behaviors by male faculty members towards female students/children. Thank you principal & superintendent for protecting your teachers and NOT the safety and security of your students."

    "This school is okay. Not much diversity though. Being that it is in a small community my child has been in with the same class of kids since the 3rd grade. Also don't have a great feeling about the schools anti bullying policy. My son had some issues with another child and it was eventually played off as not a big deal by the principal. When I withdrew him no one even asked why."

    "I have never liked the public school system, but gave this school a chance based on what our neighbors have said. This school is outstanding! They are up to date with technology, and communicate electronically with parents. They are safety conscious and ensure each child gets into the correct vehicle. I love the small town feel. The principal even takes the time to remember every student, and their parents. My only critique is the special needs area. They need more training, and equipment."

    "My school is awesome and the people that work there care about their students. Everyone is sweet and the whole Festival Foothills Team is a great way for our daughter to grow and become a smart and dynamic student. Thank you to all of you!! Mike & Reyna Mason"
