    "I aggree with the last reviewer that the students of Brian Piccolo have a great deal of potential. They are living and functioning in challenging situtaions at home and in the community. Piccolo is place where they can come and feel safe knowing that there are adults who care about them and feel that they are capable of success. The administration recognizes the behavioral issues of students and parents that are faced by staff regularly and supports coming to resolution in a way that promotes the behaviors we want to see form our children. Piccolo school is definitely looking for ways to get parent and community members involved in a positive way. We are begging for parent patrol memebers, local school council memebers and classroom volunteers. However, volunteers must be willing to present themselves as role models for children. Piccolo is definitely a different place than in years past. There is much more structure and a higher level of accountability for students, staff and any visitors to Piccolo. As the instructional Leader of the school Piccolo must be a place where high quality learning takes place and is safe. Nothing else is acceptable. I recognize that his ruffles some feathers sometimes. If Piccolo is truly to improve everyone must be on board with making it so. I welcome any and all questions, comments or concerns. If as a parent, community member or staff member you have problems, come with solutions as well."

    "This school and the students doing time there have so much potential. Potential that is overlooked because the students do not feel safe. There is no discipline instilled bu the administration and if a teacher makes an effort to ascert himself, he is not backed up by the principal or her assistants. It is a joke, but no laughing matter. As long as the students' ISAT scores rise even the slightest, the administration will overlook any behavior problems. The teachers are fighting a losing battle, not with the students who hunger for their guidance, but with the administration and security personnel that show favorites and wish to be the students' friends instead of role models. My child who is a student at Piccolo, is no perfect student by any means, but, with a little structure and actual policy revision by the administration he would succeed."

    "This school really needs a 'Joe Clark' as their principal. The students aren't receiving the proper education that they should. I do understand that the parents need to be involved as well but the times that I have went up to the school for parent/teacher conferences I have noticed that their are alot of teachers who don't care to teach the students who dont want to learn. They allow them to roam the halls and do whatever they please. This school needs an entire makeover and a new leadership team to run lead it in that direction."

    "I think that this school really needs some help academically and in the area of parent-teacher relations,the whole school needs to unite as one and stop all this mess with the small schools.I believe the students would respond better if they knew that everyone was on the same page.Their is way too much going on outside in the community that is being allowed to come into the school day and that contributes to a lot of disruptions, a lot of the students live close to each other and at home issues have found their way to school, another thing is that some of the parents are not working with their children at home enough and definitely not with the teachers to improve these crappy test scores. what is happening at this school? their should be a mandatory meeting between teachers and parents right now on these issues before we go further."

    "I think there needs to be more one on one help for the kids and the class rooms are over crowded. Over all I think the kids scores will improve with a litte more help from teachers there are at least 30 kids to a classroom that is too many, and the school don't have enough computers for the students, but the staff is wonderful. But that's just not enough."
