    "I am happy to send my children to school at Francone. In the past, I have had some concerns, but I know the principal is doing what she can to turn around Francone. She has the biggest heart and does what she can for our children. Working in the business world, it is easy to get rid of those that are not helping the company be successful. In education it is not as easy. Ms. Melancon continues to hire people that truly care about children. She is exactly the leader this school needs."

    "This school has been an absolute nightmare. My oldest child is gifted, and received very little trouble, however my younger two children have had some struggles due to abuse from their biological mother. Now at home, my husband and I have worked vigilantly (with therapists and psychiatrists) to help them overcome these issues, but the staff has worked against us every step of the way. Firstly, they refused to acknowledge me as a parent. Despite many, many written and verbal requests that I be the primary contact, they refused to contact me first, always contacting my husband instead. That is, when they bothered contacting at all. With children who are dealing with emotional traumas, I needed to know immediately any issues throughout the week, but the teachers often lied, saying there had been no issues, only to find out later there had been. This undermined their recovery. My attempts to reach out to the school were met with snide commentary, accusations, and condescending "suggestions" that I merely "have a talk" with my children about their behaviour, or attend a generic parenting class. Horrible place. Glad I'm moving soon!"

    "This school is horrible!! My daughter attended this school for three months and it was the worst experience I ever had. The teachers have to deal with so many behavior issues, they can not teach. My daughter is speech delayed and I had to current a lot of words she learned to pronounce incorrectly. The administrators have no clue how to deal with knowledgable parents. The staff tries to run you over and tell you how your child's special education is going to be. The zoning to this school is mostly low income. Not that low income is bad but the stereotypical view applies here. Do not let your child attend this school."

    "There is a large population of African Americans and Hispanics at this particular school. I have had to work extra hard with my children because they are the minority being white. A lot of the African American students can be very aggressive and ready to fight for some reason. The hardest part is to redirect my own child s behavior and get intervention when needed. Our children need their parent s involvement as much as possible being at the youth they are. And helping them make the right decisions are very critical. This is what you get with a public school as diversified as it is. The teachers have a hard enough time as it is, teaching without interruptions during the day, much less intervening with each incident that happens. I work hard with my children along with the teachers, supporting the teachers as much as I can. If every parent could do their part, this school would be rated at least a 7. The academic work is challenging if you work with your child and teacher allowing them to prosper. It is a team effort raising these children to go to college and better themselves. We cannot put the blame on the teachers when we all have to do our part to help them become successful."
