    "My daughter has attended Ponderosa since kinder and is in the fourth grade now. This school is extremely unorganized. Ever since first grade, the kids would start off in one class, but two weeks later, they would be switched to another class. The teachers yell at the students when trying to discipline them. The teachers really don't solve any problems. When a child tries to tell them another child is harassing them, the teacher just says, "sit down." They only do something when a child gets hurt. The principal has ZERO leadership skills. She doesn't make her presence known at all. The kids hardly ever get homework. I don't see how they expect kids to practice what they learn without homework. The staff is doing the bare minimum just to keep their jobs and to be able to call Ponderosa a 'school'. Until their attitude changes, this school is going to keep going down hill fast....it's not too far from rock bottom now."

    "I made the huge mistake of sending my son to this school for one year after moving nearby. Instead of being assessed at the beginning of the school year, he was changed classes three different times. He was not challenged & just felt unbalanced & like he was starting all over each time. He did make excellent grades.. but he was also doing work that he did two years prior at the previous school attended. He was assigned homework only 3 times the whole year!!! He is now back at his old school & for the first time ever is struggling to keep up. It's like he missed a whole year of school!!"
