    "I once was a student at this school. I have the most wonderful memories of this beautiful school, It had everything from good teachers, classrooms full of necessary materials,and even a basquetball court were I trained with my basketball team and my best friend,the Art teacher. He thought me how to draw,paint and most of all how to appreciate Art. I hope he hasint forgoten me beacause i havint. I plan to one day return to ths school and visit all of my old teacher,the only thing stoping me is my age,im 14 years old. But one thing is for sure,im coming back! Greattings from Mexico S.L.P."

    "Tonti School has seen its best days ever. The principal is retiring after 16 years in that post. Four different Local School Councils renewed her contract. I would like to remind the Tonti community that we the parents voted for those LSC members. Tonti School flourished under her administration, programs and services were offered to the whole community. She hired many good teachers, and teachers reflect administration and her philosophy of education."

    "Most of the teachers at Tonti are fantastic and truly care about the children. While there is a great amount of materials within Tonti, I believe the focus is only on the k-6 students. The 7th & 8th grade students and staff at the Branch are completely ignored and not treated as part of the 'Tonti community.' The principal and some of her administration make themselves unavailable to people, the principal is extremely rude, disrespectful and definitely shows favoritism to certain people who are willing to do what ever she says, whether it's right or wrong. The best thing to ever happen is that she is retiring and I hope the LSC doesn't make another mistake when they pick the new adminstration. If they do, this school will surely fail."

    "Despite the negative score, it is important for people to understand that the teachers at this school are wonderful. They are well-educated and they keep up with the latest teaching practices to provide the best education they can for their students. The teachers do a phenomenal job communicating with parents and care immensely about their students. Unfortunately, the administrative staff including the principal are disconnected and could help improve the school by simply being more supportive and available to parents, teachers and students. Your child will get a good education at this school if you are willing to work closely with the teachers."

    "I think that the teachers here work very hard, but unfortunately the principal is completely closed off, ineffective, and extremely rude. So many people in this building are working hard for this to be a great school, but until the head honcho actually does her job, nothing will really ever change, and this will continue to be a miserable place to work."
