    "Samuels has seen some change over the last few years and through it all the school, its teachers, and especially its students, have grown stronger. Samuels is a top-performing school whose students show strong academic growth each year. With a culture of diversity, respect, and the commitment to students first, Samuels has attracted some of the most qualified, dedicated and talented administrators; including principals and assistant principals. Administrators have come and gone over the last three years because they were offered promotions within the district. There is a zero tolerance for bullying at Samuels. Misbehavior is dealt with using restorative approaches and appropriate consequences are given according to DPS protocol and students are suspended when necessary. Our current principal approaches disciplinary issues very directly. As a teacher I feel supported and my students have not lost learning time because of another child s behavior. When it cannot be dealt with in the classroom, it IS dealt with in the office. Samuels is a safe, enriching, and loving environment for any child to learn and grow in."

    "Samuels has wonderful teachers and paraprofessional teachers. But in the past five years that my children have gone there, the school has had three principals and now both the assistant principals are leaving!! If we can't have consistent leadership at Samuels, what are we telling the kids? That we can't be there for them? That the principals are using the school as a stepping step for another career move? Samuels must be a rough school if the there is a high turn over of leadership. It is already known throughout the neighborhood that the school has a bullying problem that never ceases. Now, I'm hearing that there are no suspensions. How will this never ending bullying problem end if the leaders can't be strong enough to handle disciplinary problems. I'm very disappointed in the adminstration at Samuels."

    "We all enjoyed a delightful event last month called the Celebration of Cultures. Families and students decked out in their beautiful, traditional clothing came bearing delicious foods from around the world. Based on a showing of more than 600 people, we know that our diverse community cares about Samuels and their children's education. We are all looking forward to next year's celebration!"

    "I absolutely LOVE where this school is headed. As a concerned parent, I looked to choice into schools and ranked all DPS by test scores. Then I looked at what else the school offered in regards to socialization. Cultural awareness, diet, activities, and resourcefulness to name a few. After speaking with the new principal and seeing the scores in growth I decided to give the kindergarten a try. The students are not just learning about cultural awareness, they experience it! The cafeteria uses some of the produce from the garden and my son could not be happier. Still, as a concerned parent, I joined the CSC to help change from within and am astounded by the teacher and parental involvement in the school. I see things changing every day and know what constraints and restrictions are in place. With the current leadership in place, I have no doubt that Samuels will become one of the number one picks for future parents looking to choice into a fantastic school."
