    "After 5 years at Falk I removed my child for 5th grade. Over those years I watched family after family leave Falk. But we kept our child there because everyone should learn to deal with difficult circumstances. However, the final straw for us was when one student was dared to hit my student in the classroom...and he did. That child was RETURNED to the classroom after less than 10 minutes. MMSD has very clear rules regarding physical assult at school including immediate removal from school grounds. Falk administration does not abide by these standards. The classroom teachers were as frustrated as I was that he was returned to the classroom. The teachers at Falk are absolutely amazing but they were spending easily 80% of class time dealing with conflict and discipline. It made me sad to remove my child from the neighborhood school but it was clear that my child was not safe at Falk. Until the principal starts supporting ALL children in the school it will continue to go downhill."

    "My daughter is a current third grader (soon to be fourth) at Falk Elementary. The best testament I can give to Falk is that she loves her school and looks forward to going every day. She takes great pride in being a Falk student. We participate in after school and evening programs and are getting to know our neighborhood better. She is challenged academically and has good friends in several different ethnic groups. Sure wish I had that when I was younger. Some others on this site speak of bullying and I will admit that it does exist. However, the principal and teachers have always handled it quickly and appropriately. We have helped our daughter navigate the waters and believe she is learning how to handle the world she is apart of ... I mean we only have to turn on the television to see bullying happening throughout our society, it is not only limited to certain parts of town. Enroll your child, get involved, and help create a stronger community ... you will not be disappointed."

    "I will admit that I was anxious about sending my child to Falk before starting, because of the negative reputation we hear about. I believe strongly in neighborhood community and I feel as though it teaches a valuable lesson to my children about life. After getting involved and working with the dedicated teachers and staff, I believe in this school and very thankful that we go there. I am a teacher and have taught in a few other schools in the district. Falk is not much different, if at all. It's really a shame that people pull out before giving it a try."

    "My child has been attending falk for several years. The first 2 years were a horror with constant bullying from other students, as well as a personality conflict between the teacher and my child. Somne of the staff have a lack of passionb for their jobs. Alot has changed since I was in school. The school has no enrichement for the students. The communication lacks big time! To find out your child is being bullied at a parent teacher conference??? Do these people not know how to pick up a phone and call the parents? The bullying is out of control. Schools sing and cheer at rallies on how their school is a bully free! Sure, and Im santa clause.This is how bad things happen....... then are all left wondering, "how did this happen,"" What went wrong". Not all, but many teachers and staff(PRINCIPLES) have gotten lazier and lazier as the years go by."

    "If you judge a school only on your child's experience, you have a very small sample. I'd suggest if you really want to know how a school operates, volunteer there. Tutor, help out with trips, participate in extra curricular activities. You might find you have a very different opinion of the school when you are involved."
