    "I have two children at Satchel Ford and am delighted they're both receiving such an excellent public school education. Both have tested into the Advanced Academic Placement program thanks to excellent teachers. I really appreciate the emphasis on writing and the arts and the encouragement to be lifelong lovers of reading. This is a safe, secure, welcoming and diverse environment conducive to learning and enjoying school. The related arts program is exceptional. The grade-level performances incorporate drama, music, dancing and visual arts in relating to the curriculum. My only complaint about this school is with the PTO, which does an excellent job raising funds for the school and staging events but falls short when it comes to communicating with parents. PTO meetings are actually those grade-level performances mentioned above, and almost no actual PTO business is discussed. Decisions seem to be made by a select few in daytime executive meetings that are impossible for most parents to attend. The parent leadership is clique-ish, probably common in such excellent public schools but quite off-putting to parents who want to be involved in more than just sending money to the school."

    "Some of the teachers are phenomenal. Some of the teachers are horrible and honestly don't seem to even like children. The principal is on a power trip and although she claims to want parental input regarding their child, she purposely gives parents exactly the opposite of what the parents feel the child needs (in terms of type of teacher). There is way too much homework/busy work given and parents are not allowed in the classrooms ever! The children are taught "to the test" instead of according to what they need."

    "It's one of the worst schools ever. The teachers give students unreasonable grades. That don't try to let the student be in their comfort zone and the school clean up is filthy but the school is actually big I give them that but that's it."

    "Both of my children have attended here since Kindergarten (oldest going into 4th). We have had a great experience and would highly recommend this school for anyone seeking a private education for a public school price!"
