    "Amazing things happening in this school. Mrs. Carlson and Ms. Tate are two of the best educators around. Oklahoma City should try to follow their lead. I feel privileged to have my children attend this school."

    "This is the second year my daughters have attended Putnam Heights Elementary, and we have been so pleased. Ms. Carlson and the entire faculty are fantastic, and the atmosphere in the school is upbeat and positive. There are certainly obstacles to overcome for the leadership on this campus when it comes to helping children excel to the standards set for by the state of Oklahoma, but I have no doubt that the intervention approaches being utilized will bring test scores up very soon. Overall, we are proud to be part of the PHE community!"

    "NOT ENOUGH INTEREST IN SAFETY OF STUDENTS! I called the principal & superintendent's office at the beginning of the 11-12 school year after I observed two pre-k students (whom I'd seen dropped off 15 minutes before) attempting to leave school grounds. One was standing on the curb to the lot looking lost & the other was running across a field toward the street. I took both kids back inside to the secretary, told her I knew the teacher was late & the door to her class was locked. Called the principal to let him know what happened & asked him why there are no adults monitoring the arrival of students. He said it was a great idea & that he'd ask some parents to volunteer. This answer was not good enough! The school did not tell the parents of either girl what happended either. I contacted the super's office & was told they were working on a solution to this issue & they would keep me informed. Guess what? Now we have 5 weeks left & there is STILL no safety plan! One parent stood at the door to the office for a few months, but now he's gone too. I want to know that when I leave my kid at school, they're safe. Sadly, this school falls well below the mark on safety."

    "Sadly, I can give Putnam Heights only 1 star. Though many of the teachers are good and do their best, the principal is absurdly inept. My kids attended for three years, and I had to make calls to the administration multiple times each of those years. He talks the talk, but unfortunately doesn't come close to walking the walk, and the last thing he wants is engaged parents. With the departure of the reading specialist, who basically functioned as the principal, I'm guessing the school with go farther downhill. For the sake of the students, teachers and parents, I hope the administration makes leadership changes as soon as possible."

    "I've heard talk about the administration not being all it's cracked up to be. Recently I've heard there is an investigation into the principal and his practices at Puntnam Heights. There just seems to be too much buzz about how terrible he is to not be some truth to the matter. My face to face encounters with him and also been a little unnerving. He seems to tell people what they want to hear without any clear understanding of what he's actually talking about. I have a feeling his office chair is a little too cushy for him and he expects excellence from his teachers and kids, but does not actualy embody excellence himself. It seems kinda like a double standard. Is that what we want our kinds to learn?"
