    "This school is a decent school. My son has only been in this school for a year but i've seen the progress he has made and it's very much thanks to Mrs. Warren, She's an awesome teacher and makes sure all her students are getting the education they need. My son is in the low spectrum and she made sure he was evaluated and now hes in tutoring and it is helping him tremendously!"

    "I am a former student who transferred to Edison and I think that Volta was terrible back when they had a gifted program. They fired my kindergarten teacher because they needed more Hispanic teachers. I think that Mr Johnson spends way too much effort on trying to make kids who aren't bilingual focus on non-main subjects. When I was in the gifted program, they let anyone in. In my class alone, which was split into two grades that were taught by the same teacher, at least four kids had to go to summer school and were not kicked out of the gifted program. And don't get me started on gym. They have had the same (ex-science and math) gym teacher for around 15+ years and on some days he would let us play anything as long as it involved a certain item, whether jump rope or basketball that would be basically it. And let me tell you, the school was built in the 50s and some classrooms haven't changed since. That is what I think about Volta (but not the teachers other than the gym teacher)."

    "As a community member, I have seen the consistent decline of this school since the current principal has taken over. Truly too bad!"

    "Volta has great teachers and it is a very good school. Now for all the haters out there, why dont u try actually going to Volta and checking it out. For all i know, you guys dont know anything about this school and it may be one of the best Elementary schools out there."

    "As a parent , I have a daughter that goes to Volta. All i can say about this school is that it is the worst school I ever saw in my entire life. Everyday she would be crying to me, because she would always be tease and pick on. I went to go report it so many times but the staff doesn't do anything at all. They always say they will do something about it but they don't do anything. I member she told that she will do anything to move out of that school. So if any person is reading this right now , I suggest that you don't go to this school. It is the worst school ever in my entire life."
