    "If you read the reviews you can see that there has been a complete shift of attitude toward the school from when the new principal arrived after Mr. Brown was moved to another school. The new administration has ruined the school. Teachers are quitting, even deans and assistant principals have quit. Discipline is not followed through and the teachers' hands are tied. They receive no support. This principal acts like he's afraid of the students and doesn't even know them. OCPS better get their act together to do something about it. There are problems with thug behavior daily. Sadly my older children received a great education there, for the younger ones, it's too dangerous to send. I heard that the county thought one dean was writing too many referrals at SWMS and now they can only give time outs! Rediculous! Throw out the Principal and and control the students! There are some very good teachers left but their moral is low and they are under great pressure."

    "We moved to Dr Phillips with the expressed purpose of sending our children to A rated schoolS. We decided that the high prices area would be worth it to have our children in a great school district. This is not the case. Southwest buses in kids from other out of district areas for whatever reason and sadly it creates behavior problems and constant issues with fighting and police being called to the school. I have not personally had any issues arise with my son , however, I hear of fights and drama everyday . The principal does not have control of his school and something should be done to clean up the student body attitudes and behavior. The parents that pay the high Dr Phillips taxes deserve better for their children. There are a few teachers that also are not up to par at that school and should be removed or replaced. I plead to the school board to consider looking into the many problems that plague this school. It could be a great school with the right leadership and attention."

    "My son hated this school! He was bullied and they did nothing. His Audio Visual class instructor was mean and verbally put down the students in front of others. She did this on a regular basis. She even put them down in front of others after they had graduated and left to go to another school. Worst instructor ever! She should not be in charge of children. She doesn't care about their well being at all. I think she just likes to hurt felling. She thinks it's funny. What a sicko! She told his friends that they should reconsider their friendship. That is just so hurtful! As a parent I was glad I took him out of her class. I just wonder how many more people she has hurt. She should be fired! His math teacher was amazing though! She really cared about the students and she wanted to help them succeed!"

    "Like I've been coming to this school for a month and its bad. Like there are fights EVERYDAY the teachers don't care about anything and we can skip class when ever. I love my friends there but the staff is rude and mean. The only reason I'm still there is because of my boyfriend and my close friends. Thank god I'm going to chain of the lakes next year!"
