    "My son is entering into 3rd grade this year and we are pulling him out of Friendship to homeschool him. We had a horrible 2nd grade year and a teacher that never even called parent/teacher conferences. I finally had to call my own in March (tried in November and December and we could never cordinate a meeting time) just to find out what she thought about my sons academic progress. All I heard from him was that he was constantly getting fussed at for everything and my child is ADD and wasn't getting any help. On top of that he was constantly getting picked on by other kids and then he would get in trouble if he stood up for himself(never physically!). His teacher would send me notes telling me to talk to him about paying attention. We were lucky in K and 1st grade with our teachers, but couldn't chance another year of misery."

    "We have been at Friendship for 4 years now. The teachers are wonderful, but the lack of direction from the administration has the school traveling down a non-academic path. We have been disappointed with the "Wellness" initiative, and will be going to a school that focuses on academics in the future."

    "I love Friendship Elementary. My daughter has been there 3 years now. I have nothing but good things to say about all the teachers and the school. From our our grade level teacher to the PE teachers, Art Teachers etc. all have been great. She has great test scores, testing above grade level. That should say something. Don't just look at the 8 stars, look at the current comments from parents. Some of the comments are very old dating back to 2006! Things do change!!!"

    "Whoever said the Iowa test scores were in the 50's are very wrong. They have some of the highest test scores in the county- that is why we chose this district to build in. We love the school and love the teachers and the administration. Some of the curriculum that is not challenging is more a district thing, but Friendship does well implementing it and beefing it up some."
