    "I am very disappointed with The Varnett Northeast school. I can tell that the staff their are their for the money. No passion for teaching I honestly believe that the staff their just want to get a pay check. The event I attend today was awful I could not find any friendly teacher's nobody greeted the parents with a warm welcome. Everyone their seems lifeless I honestly believe this school should be shut down. You have to love what you do to get kids motivated to learn. Don't give teachers a job just to make money and destroy the future. You also have bus driver listen to bad influence music while its young kids on the bus. They should be listen to kid friendly music.. But I did have one teacher that had somewhat of a spark of life and gave me a good experience."

    "This is the worst school i have put my daughter in.As you can tell by the test scores there falling..... I sent my daughter to school with a note on her report card that said please call me . No calls nothing for 2 weeks. One of the teachers wanted my daughter in special ed. Now no one knows anything. The teacher are dropping like fly's. This school is so unorganized. I know the system is better then this. Also since my daughter has started school she has not had 1 set of spelling words sent home. The principal doesn't no anything. They call you when they didn't receive a permission slip for a field trip but don't respond to your notes going to the school. They would have to change alot to get me to change my mind. I thought the class rooms were smaller. That is a no. Since school started my daughter has had 3 teachers quit. How do you know any grades if the teacher just quit?"

    "My daughter actually attended the southwest campus. This is a horrible school it is ran in a very unprofessional manner. I was chastised by the "superintendent" on several occasions as if I was not an adult. The reviews I read previous to my child going here were very accurate the teachers are treated poorly, my child attended through April there was three different teacher assistants and the teacher quit in the middle of the school year, and the parents were not notified. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE! If zero stars was an option that's what I would give this school."

    "My son has grown and is developing very well since 'The Varnett Charter School.' In order for this school to be performing so well it has to have a good strong director, so, my hats are of to you Mrs. Morrow(Principal). This school is very well directed and administered. The teaching is excellent on all levels. The most important thing that I admire about this school is that the staff does not give up on our students, and they are very encouraging, patient and honest with our children. This is what our children need; and it is for these reasons my son will definitely remain at this school until 5th grade. We could use more extra curricular activities and (parent involvement). Mrs. Cluff, can you please open up a high school for our children? I am a very proud parent!"

    "My child had a wonderful experience in Ms. Perry's fourth grade class, she is an excellent teacher. But, the director of this campus acts like a dictator and does not know how to treat the children, parents, or staff with any respect. The school does not offer any extra curricular activites and seems to only focus on testing, not teaching the children. This is a terrible school with a terrible director, I wouldn't reccomend this school to anyone unless you want your child's education to suffer."
