    "I know several people with children here, and they are all pleased. Mainly, I want to say (as a teacher), that parents like the ones below often make our jobs impossible. I can assure you, teachers are not in it for the money. Aside from having the summer off (which we do not get paid for, despite popular belief... Our pay is simply spread throughout the year), there are no "perks." So, teaching while "not liking children" would simply not be a viable choice. Teachers desperately try to help each student as much as we can. Mind you, this is often with a classroom of 30 students, many of them WITH special needs. Most of us do not have co-teachers to come in and help. This is the nature of public school... Free education for ALL. We must deal with parents who have unreasonable expectations of teachers, but little to no expectations for their children. It all starts at home. I can guarantee that the experience you have with your children's school has everything to do with your involvement in the education. A simple increase in parental support and involvement takes any school to a much higher level."

    "My child is special needs and goes to this school and it is horrible. The people who work there are very disrepectful to parents and won't listen to a thing they say. They really tie your hands as far as where your student goes, who the teacher is, and the students grade level. Also, the food their is terrible. They serve fruity cereal for breakfast and one day they had corn dogs. The quality is extremely poor with very little nutrition. My child's teacher rarely praises him and seems to focus on all his negative qualities. He is a pleasant child at home and usually obedient, but at school apparently he is a bad child. I feel like they make that out to be my fault instead of the authorities in the school. My child has been in special ed classes for the past 3.5 years at least and while he sometimes acted up. It was never on a daily basis. He has some problems behaving like every kid, but is generally a good boy, especially around his dad and I."

    "I was told this was the best school here in columbia. I sent my children here the beginning of the school year and within a week of my kids going I transferred them to another. Horrible experience with some of the main staff. Will never recommend this school to anyone. The reason why there scores are so high in testing is because thats all they make the children focus on. I have a friend that her child attends this school,who is in third grade and still doesn't know how to spell. Yes, the mayor sent his children here, ask if he would now.This school might have been great years ago but not now. Would not RECOMMEND horrible school some staff do not belong there. This school may have be"
