    "I've been in this district for most of my education. I've read that the honors classes were no different from core which is wrong. I've taken honors classes as much as I can, I'm in four of my five academic classes, and the amount of work/responsibility/effort/expectation is higher. Bullying was mentioned before. One of my friends and my sibling have been bullied but the guidance office took care of it, after the parents and peers joined the conflict and it got worse. They started as fights over a project. Cliques; we have a lot of them. I don't think we intentionally make them but it just happens. Sporty people are friends, "nerdy" people are friends. I think we have a popular crowd and unpopular crowd though, the athletic and class clowns are more popular than the "nerdy," drama-club, and shy kids. It just depends on your interests in and out of class. Patton definitely could use a major pick me up but it does its job. Patton does care highly about test scores but why shouldn't they? They help you in the long run Communication seems to be an issue and I know that teachers do contact parents if grades are falling dramatically. Sports and art and really important at Patton."

    "This school has been quite a disappointment. Initial introductions & orientation were exciting & sounded wonderful; however actual delivery of quality education is poor. Many of the staff are rather haughty; the school is ridiculously regimented in their operations; & there is very little semblance of any sincere nurturing of these young childrens' souls. Communication from the school to home regarding academic progress is cursory and, as mentioned in previous reviews, if you press for more meaningful information you are met with coolness, resistance, & even covert hostility. I agree with many posters that the school's focus seems to be on "appearances" and prestige. If you are looking for a school where your child can grow & thrive in a nurturing environment I suggest you look elsewhere."

    "This is our 3rd year of experience with CF Patton. The teachers here are truly outstanding. They have made their subjects interesting to my children and they look for different ways to make sure the students can relate the material to everyday life. They also evaluated my children for their learning styles to teach them how to best utilize different strategies for studying and completing projects. They have a greenhouse where the students learn hands on about life science, tending to, harvesting and using the crops. The overage of food is donated to the food bank. What an amazing school this is! I love that the teachers post assignments on the website and that I can check on my child's progress at any time. I have not met the principal yet."

    "I don't know where did you move from Virginia, but I moved from Langley school district in Virgina 4 years ago. It is not even comparable. I would not recommend these schools. They are kind of discrimminating people from out of area even in sports teams, URA."

    "We moved here a year ago from a highly rated school in Virginia. The teachers here are excellent and respond quickly to concerns. Assignments are posted so you can keep track of your child's progress. The students are taught organization skills. There is a good variety of electives offered. The parents are involved and the PTO schedules many fun activities for the families that are a great way to get to know the community and support the school. The teachers really care and pay attention to getting to know a student's needs. There are many opportunities to visit the school to see what your child is learning. My child has had a very positive experience here!"
