    ".I am very, very pleased with the education my child is receiving at Locust School. I feel the curriculum is challenging to my accelerated student. I am also very impressed by the teaching staff. I find them to be excellent teachers, friendly and approachable, and very devoted to their students. ... Read more My child stated he likes the teachers personalities, and their teaching styles. He enjoys his school each and every day, and that makes a world of difference! If you are involved in your child's education, you will be very satisfied."

    "I have a third grader and a Kindergartener attending Locust. I moved into this district from out of state in Jan 2009. My son finished 2nd grade at Locust and was doing ok. It was not until 2 days before the school year ended that I discovered he had been bullied on the bus since January. The bus driver, although aware, did nothing to address it or to bring it to my attention. Now in 3rd grade, he is not in a class that is helping him learn or build confidence. After paying the registration fees for public school, I now have to pay for tutoring as my son's teacher advised us that she has too many kids in class to be certain each one is grasping what she is teaching before moving on. The focus is to push through to prepare for the ISATs in March, despite the fact that half of her class is failing. A note was sent home advising parents the kids need to be sure they are returning with their "do over" papers corrected to improve their grades or half the class will fail midterms. My 8 year old hates school, feels like a failure, and dreads Mondays. He has never had issues in school prior to being in this district."

    "Walking around the building, the kids seem to have no enthusiasm. The place feels very depressing. Also, how many kids can they loose track of? I swear everytime I'm there they have lost someone and are scrabbling to find him/her. I have also found kids locked out of the school and roaming around outside unsupervised, and I have talked to other parents who have the same complaint about poor supervision there."

    "Yes, there is no art and no music in the district at this time. Times are tough. If you read or listen to the news cuts are everywhere, the grass is not greener on the other side. The school isn't bad because it is having a financial crisis. It is possible to make things happen without the money. Last semester a student teacher took over the role of music teacher. There are ways around things."
