    "Myrtlewood is a great school so glad to see the school getting a new library so can't wait to see it. I hope that the staff members and some parents will have their acts together then what they had in the pass year. I pray that they can control the bullying and they stop bullying the parents. If they can't control and do their jobs right then Myrtlewood needs new staff members."

    "To the previous comment below: For your info if your daughter is in second grade then I dont know you and dont know of the drama thats going on in that school. My comments have nothing to do with anything that has happened in the last year.This is before your time.This parent that you are talking about I only pity her among the fact that you would be that low based on her opinions and PROBLEMS she has had. My comments that are on here are for real TRUE FACTS and my experiences that I have had 3 years ago I as a parent will NOT be bullied by that principal or the Tuscaloosa Co Board Again.You see I have a choice what I do with my child as long as I have her in a state affiliated school Christian School whatever.So the Drama you see has been going on way before you stepped foot in that building. So I dont know what you are being paid off to lash out at other parents but dont you think it's a problem that the principle will not allow a PTO, She changed dances to during the day, She will not let parents volunteer, and she will for no reason tell you that you are not welcome? These things changed when she became president of Myrtlewood. Continued in another post."

    "These types of things existed before her time!! What school doesnt allow parents to be involved and If there is such a parent that you may seem to cause DRAMA Well Honey let me start off by saying she/him is not the first parent that has had the very similar problem... I can name atleast 40 families that will not place their children in this school due to the so called Drama you are calling this parent out on... Home schoolers and Christian Schoolers see we pay for our education because Tuscaloosa County schools will not get rid of the control freak!! Like her if you will That's your baby so Rock it!!"

    "This is my daughter's second year at this school. It is an outstanding school. It is a small Title 1 school, which means it has very particular regulations that it must follow in order to be eligible for Title 1 funds that it very much needs. The staff at Myrtlewood are amazing, they are friendly, helpful and just generally easy to get along with. There has been some drama within the last year, regarding the Parent Involvement Committee, while unfortunate, there is little that can be done about it, as the parent refuses to see their errors, and are unwilling to follow the guidelines set forth by our administration regarding the safety of our students. I fully stand by this administration and the hard decisions that have had to be made. This is a fun school that puts learning first! If you want a Principal that will protect your children, like a "Mama Bear" while they are in her care, this is the school for you! The teachers here on a whole are outstanding, there are always a couple that we wish would do something differently, but you will see that in any school. "PTA" has fees, which is why we don't have one, our Principal believes parents shouldn't have to pay to help. ~DL"

    "Myrtlewood is a hidden gem in Tuscaloosa County. We have a "family" atmosphere among the faculty, parents, and students. One reason for this is because we have had almost no faculty turn over for many years. The teachers and administration really care about the students, parents, and each other. I wouldn't want to teach anywhere else. We have the latest technology, resources, and are getting a state-of-the-art library. We are blessed."
