    "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."

    "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."
