    "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"

    "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."
