    "Poor communication and judgement with office staff. We have never had head lice until we started at farmer. Flu, stomach viruses you name it. The nurse is not an R.N. And really should be replaced with one. The principal is rated low due to needed staffing changes in the front office."

    "I couldn't be more happy with my experience at Farmer. I was bummed when my daughter didn't get into traditional school but this school has exceeded my expectations. The communication from the teachers with the parents is great and they have programs that you can log onto at home to help you child with reading and math."

    "Lots of parent involvement and great teachers. The principal went to private school (Assumption I think) and adds a touch of that experience to the way she runs this one. Ways to improve would be to add foreign language and advanced program classes."

    "My friend s children are in this school. She told me that this school is a little too strict and do not take into consideration anything when it comes to following their rules. There was this graduation party for my friend s son and they did not let her attend it because she had a baby with her. She has no one to leave her son with, and cannot afford to put him in daycare or anywhere else. She was sitting in the office crying and her son was crying as well because they didn t allow his mom to attend. This is one example."

    "I gave this school an average rating since half the teachers are amazing and the other half are just ...well, not amazing. Based on the experiences of three children going through this school, as long as your kids are self motivated learners & never have problems this school is sufficient. In most Kentucky schools, academics lag far behind other areas of the country & this school is no exception. The services offered are limited and there is clear bias against children with difficulties. The principal is chirpy and condescending and talks to adults like they are children. She acts more like a preschool teacher than a principal and has actually said that certain children do not "fit in with the culture of MY school!" That is a direct quote I find interesting since the school belongs to the children and the community, not her. There are certain teachers that go the extra mile to help your child reach their potential and instill a strong sense of self worth, unfortunately some are rigid and uncaring and undo all the good of others. So if you have a typical kid this school is fine, if your child requires extra help or attention I suggest you look elsewhere."
