    "I was very disappointed throughout the one year our son spent here. One child in his class had severe behavioral disorder... we spoke with the teacher and later the principal after our son came home upset several times because he was punched, tripped, pushed into lockers, etc. by this child. Other kids were getting bullied as well. If a teacher witnessed, this child would get a minor. Over and over and over and over. We were continuously told "we're working on it". Clearly this "disciplinary" system was not effective... but it continued through the entire year. Why does my child and the others in his class have to deal with getting physically hurt and bullied while they "work on it"? Our son would tell us about the foul language and inappropriate references used by his classmates on a daily basis. Did I mention this was first grade? Some of this is to be expected... but still. I will say that my son's teacher was wonderful, and I believe she did all she could. The art teacher is fantastic as well. I believe that the administration at Sanborn is TRYING to improve things. Maybe someday they'll get there. But thankfully my son will not be there to find out."

    "Gray Sanborn... This school is awful on it's disciplinary policies and I think also the school is racist. There are some flaws in every public school system but something's that are done here appear to be vindictive. Teachers address issues with unnecessary aggression and condescending tones that really come off as idiotic more than informational. My daughter was the one of the kids left out of the mentoring program, where the students look after the younger students. The issue was not that there weren't any children to mentor because there were some mentors with 2 younger students, when you only allowed one. I thought that was appalling. With volunteering as well you are treated carelessly as if you are not giving your time to participate. I've went to introduce myself to the band teacher and the first thing she said to me is "make sure your daughter brings back her band instrument if you move". I hadn't confirmed that I was moving. Anyhow I have a gang of ordeals with this school and their policies. If there is an issue with minorities they should not make it so obvious. Keep it quiet. Sssssshhhhhh"

    "Our family moved here from another state at the beginning of the school year. The staff and teachers at Sanborn really made my children feel very welcome. The school is constantly trying new things to improve the learning experience for the children. Absolutely no school is perfect anywhere but our family has been truly happy with the education that our children are receiving."

    "This school is awful, if a student is well behave, follow rules and respectful then they are seen by their teacher as meek. Good student who are above average are not valued, students who bullies are not held accountable. Report bullying is a joke the assistance principle tells you will investigate the bullying then never follow up with the parent of the victim and refuse tell the parent what if any punishment was given to the bully. Also have witness a teacher behaving unprofessionally by screaming at students."
