    "Just withdrew my son from this school because we moved, in the beginning it was a challenge because the administrators and staff have so many different personalities to deal with but once they get to know you and your character you will get treated with the respect you deserve. The school is not responsible for fully educating your child it starts at home with the parents, need I say more, thanks Mr. Lopez went out his way when I ran outta gas thanks officer Russell for keeping my child safe and Ms. V Allen thank you for being a great teacher for the short time my child was there in kindergarten, take care u guys and continue to strive for the BEST"

    "This principal for this school is horrible. If you ask him a question, he directs you to someone else every time. I had a problem when my child's teacher was out for 3 weeks and there was no homework, no notice given to the parents. And he wouldn't address it, he sent to the school counselor...........he ramble on and on about nothing. The playground area is unsafe and there loose concrete as you walk back there. There are some great teachers there. My issues were not with the teachers, but with Administration-Principal, Asst. Principal, and Counselors they all are horrible! They are to busy being rude, not addressing critical matters in the school, and always blaming another party. Whatever, success the school is having trust me it the parents and teachers making it happen."

    "My son attends this school as of this year and is frequently bullied by other kids. I've reported this bullying a couple of times to the Principal and written notes to the teachers and the same bullies continue to threatens to cause severe harm to my child. The first month of attendance, my son was punched in the mouth and made his lip bleed. The children uses curse words in front of adults and I did not hear a staff member correct that child from speaking profanity language. After the holidays of this year, I will be tranferring my son to a better school. I recommend that you do not bring your child to this school unless your child is "hardcore"."

    "The one star is great exaggeration. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO THIS SCHOOL. The principal, Mr. Jenkins is as sorry as they get. No communication whatsoever. When asked questions, he never gives direct answers, and gives blank stares. Does he even know how to speak in complete comprehensible sentences? The children and parents are off the chain. I withdrew my children after being bullied and the principal doing NOTHING about it."

    "If you are aout education then do not send your child here. It was horrible experience for my child. As a interactive parent in my childs education I was amazed of the lack of educating, teacher involvement, insultive to the students things that I witnessed and was told about. Her teacher should have been behind a desk pushing paper and not molding minds. We were a part of the City of Decatur schools and when we went there it was like going from a school to a correctional facility. Needless to say we moved back to the COD school district. When my daughter started back she was 2 letter grades behind, and with hard work she has caught up to level, and soon to exceed in CRCT she has been off my a narrow margin. But the new school has gotten her to that point. She learned nothing at Farrington."
