    "Schrum is a good school but there are problems. There are lots of fights and students use foul language. The teachers are very lazy and don't want to help out students that often. There's also favortism, for example a girl can dance in the class and the teachers laugh but if a boy goes to throw something away they get a referral. Or if a girl messes with a boy and the boy tells the teacher says act like a gentlemen. The teachers act like they don't want to help the students out and that's why the students act like hooligans. The best class in the school is Spanish tought by Mrs. Housty. She goes through things correct and if u need help xhe doesn't refuse."

    "The school is so low academically the students more or less teach themselves. The only thing that is saving my child's academic future is that she is in the honor's/ gifted program, and she is just naturally smart. My student is in 8th grade now so maybe we can finish at this school on a high note."

    "For the parents that are thinking of sending their child to Schrum, DO NOT!. I've just graduated from there with all three years and it is the most disrespectful, unsanitary, and uneducational school. The teachers will not interact with you unless the principle is in the classroom and when they are finally not lazy to, they dont really explain it well enough to comprehend it. Another bad thing about it is that there are too many fights and the staff take favoritism even the principle and the assitant principle also do. The teachers cant even control their own classroom and usually never accomplish any type of education in that time. The lunches are HORRIBLE! and sometimes even under cooked. Schrum's teachers do not even have the right schooling essentials needed to educate their students. The students also do not even reach the states educational requirements due to the teachers lack of education. Overall Schrum is a very unorganized and a VERY poor funded school that is barely making it through."

    "My son is going to 8th grade. He hasn't had any academic problems because I stay on him. I do find it odd that he rarely has homework. He says they just have in class work. I really feel like the kids should be bringing home books and doing some type of home work each day. I appreciate the phone calls from teachers letting me know positive things. I do think there needs to be more respect from the students and not just on the school property. I will be glad when my son gets to TF North. My older son is there and has homework every night and also they seem to have very little tolerance for any negative behavior."

    "My child is in sixth grade, my concern is the absence of text books to bring home, yet my property and state taxes continue to rise; where is this money going if not towards are childrens' education? Extra credit use to mean exactly that, extra, not as it is now, a means to make the schools' average look better; I'm afraid that when these children reach highschool they will be in for a rude awakeing called reality; is this method helping or hurting them in the long run, only time will tell."
