    "I absolutely hate this school ... we moved here in the middle of the school year and nobody is friendly in the office they just push you threw like cattle. The principal wouldn't meet with us to make us feel comfortable because she was apparently too busy, and the security at this school is a joke, anybody can walk in here at anytime I do not feel safe leaving my daughter here. The bullying issue is ridiculous my daughter is in first grade and had the biggest brats of classmates I have ever met . They are all trying to tear each other down rather than build each other up and all the teacher can say is " I try to let the kids work things out themselves" I know the training with manors starts at home but why is the staff outing up with these kids being so disrespectful .. we are trying to change schools ASAP because I will homeschool before I out my kid back here."

    "Very poor administration. Open door policy is a joke and nonexistent. Bullying is a huge problem at this school and forget having administration deal with this seriously. Unfortunately when talking to other parents with the same issues, they all say that they had to end up moving schools. What a shame that we as parents have to search out a good school for our kids instead of the school trying to work with us and find solutions for our kids. The person suffering the most from this school is my child and it breaks my heart to see it."

    "Teachers are great. Some seem to be overwhelmed at times. But overall they put the students first. Administration is poor. Landscaping around the building and playgrounds is abysmal."

    "We have been parents at Desert Hills Elementary school for 6 years, and it has been great experience. They have had great teachers every year, and thanks to them, they get high scores on their tests. My kids also enjoy school very much, which is icing on the cake. The only problem that I have are some parents who aggravate any displeasure they have and unfortunately can foster and exacerbate an environment of discontent and mistrust. Those parents should work with the admin rather than working against them."

    "This school's teaching staff is very good and very supportive of children. Parents appear to be involved and also very supportive. Underfunding in certain is evident: technology, integration of technology and instruction, music, playground equipment and playground areas, parking, and textbooks and workbooks. The chief limitation, and it is a big one, is the poor leadership. The school's principal is highly incompetent, lacking in people and communication skills, and not interested in the opinion and concerns of parents and teachers. My several encounters with her have been unproductive and often have bordered on heated argument. She is hostile to parents, unresponsive to kids, and downright rude and intimidating in demeanor toward teachers. Parents have communicated these issues to the superintendent with no success. She needs to be terminated."
