    "My child has been at Crismon since Kindergarten and is now in 5th Grade. My 2nd child just started school there this year in Kindergarten. Up until last year we were always very happy with Crismon. But now, and especially this year, we are completely fed up with this school and the principal. The school is being run like a prison. The principal is cold and feels very unapproachable. This year there were 34 kids in my daughters class before just this week they finally hired a new teacher. There are 29 kids in my sons kindergarten class and no plans of hiring another teacher for that grade. There is no way that our kids can receive adequate attention or a quality education with that many children in the class rooms. I will say that THE TEACHERS AT CRISMON ARE FANTASTIC. Unfortunately the district policy and the principal are not. It is unfortunate that they say there is no money for funding more teachers or proper supplies yet the district spent millions of dollars on fencing and security cameras that supposedly keep our kids "safe". This is teaching our kids to live in a "fear based" way and the school feels more like a jail than a safe and welcoming environment."

    "We just started at Crismon this year and we moved from out of state. I'm still getting used to things, but I've already had several unfriendly and frankly offensive encounters with teachers and staff. They come off quite rude at times. A teacher accused me of being a bad mom when my daughter got confused as to where I would meet her after school one day and then I got an "Official Notice of Suspension" for my 5 yr old because one of his shots was given too early!! Couldn't they just call?! And there have been several more encounters that just leave a very feeling, you know? As far as education, I think it is average or even slightly above average, but frankly if you have to deal with mean people every day, it'd be better to go someplace else."

    "The teachers at Crismon "go above and beyond" in their professionalism, dedication to the students, communication skills with parents, and abilities to facilitate the educational process in a safe environment. Each student is expected to succeed, be respectful and is treated with respect. Unfortunately the Principal is not very supportive of these ideals, the teachers, the students, or the parents."

    "Although we love Crismon,( the teachers and the staff are wonderful), we miss Mr. McDonald as principal. It seems the current principal is more concerned about playing "traffic cop" to the parents who drop off and pick up their children, than the children's well being. Parents are supposed to wait in a single-file line when dropping off children; having to wait until all the cars ahead finish dropping off their kids before the kids can exit the car. Don't they realize that many parents have jobs and can't afford to wait that long in the parking lot? Us parents are grownups...Let us figure out the best way to safely enter and exit the parking lot! Our child was scolded by a "traffic enforcer" the other morning! If the school has a problem with how the parents drop off the kids, a note home would suffice...Don't involve the kids!"

    "My child has attended Crismon for 6 years. Last year we received a new principal who's priorities are not the students. She has compromised the safety and education of students and lacks interpersonal and leadership skills. The teachers are wonderful and work hard to help the students. We've decided to leave this school after seeing first hand the downward direction that it's headed."
