    "I disagree with all of the negative comments regarding the principal and teachers. This is our 3rd year at Buffalo Ridge and we are beyond thrilled with our children's education. They have had fantastic teachers and have excelled academically. I volunteer & am in the school on a weekly basis. I know most of the staff at BRE extremely well and they go above and beyond... I believe many people have the opinion that teachers left because of Sarah McAfee. That is simply not the truth. If anyone had inside information, they would know several left because of other circumstances. The teachers that were let go were not asked for their jobs back because they weren't teaching to the standards that Sarah demands. That is the way it should be in my opinion. We are grateful for BRE for providing our children with such a great education. It is a wonderful atmosphere and we couldn't be happier."

    "This school and community has been so hurt by the district and now an extremely poor choice in principals. She reallocated the budget to provide assistance for herself and not the children. Reduced special education, reading intervention and psychologist for the children so she doesn't have to work very hard. Arranged no activities for the children outside academics (and we wonder why our children are becoming so violent and hurt.....leaders like this) She broke a state law and excluded parents from having input in any decisions regarding our children or the school. A teacher from each grade has left this year. She needs to go!"

    "I wrote a review before the end of the school year that was subsequently flagged and removed because of the level of truth I put into my experience with the principal of the school. Since my review, this principal who manages the school through a spreadsheet has laid off numerous staff at the end of the school year including special education citing budgetary and reform concerns. Yet Douglas County school district continues to operate at a massive surplus. The truth is the "old school" staff who have done an amazing job but are not aligned with the principals and superintendents personal ambitions are being removed to make way for their privatized club. The very core of Buffalo Ridge Elementary is being ripped out so that a new age agenda of a couple of people can be enforced on our children. I can honestly say that being witness to the gradual deterioration of the school from within breaks my heart . My family made a conscious decision to move to the school district because of the stellar education that WAS offered. We won't be staying where parents are treated like intruders and the great teachers are being forcibly removed."

    "After years of having leadership concerns at this school there was such hope that our new school principal would motivate the staff, parents and children. I'm sorry to say that the staff is frustrated, the parents are angry and the kids are suffering. This is not the principal for our school. She is very controlling and clearly the children are not her first priority. She makes many promises and doesn't follow through, she does NOT support or motivate her staff and the parents are treated with no respect and not a value to the school. DCSD should put a successful seasoned Principal to pull the school up from years of poor administration and move this Principal out."

    "Over-crowded, unstable leadership, unhappy teachers, no teacher assistants; the over-all tone toward the children in some mid grade classes from the teaching staff is curt and unfriendly. Wonderful parent community."
