    "Horrible school system. Wissahickon lets your child slide through the cracks if they fall outside the norm. My daughter has ADD and this school was a nightmare. I didn't feel like anyone truly cared about my child's education. I went to several meetings I set up and the teachers and principal attitiudes were horrid. Any promises they make to help are never kept and it was so disorganized. they even sent home a flyer one year saying parents complained about it!! I wish my child left here sooner."

    "I personally have had a positive experience for my child at Shady Grove. One main reason is that I'm an advocate for my child and his needs.There are times when I didn't agree with the philosophy of the district and the ' micro management of classes. The teachers are the individuals getting the bad rap for some of the problems of NCLB, and the districts failure to provide adequate supports for ALL staff. Not just that of the inclusion classrooms. Remember that SG is the largest per sq ft elementary school in the district, the most diverse in population, and is a feeder school to a K-3 program. They need more supports in multiple areas than other elementary schools. Like previously mentioned we have had nothing but positive feedback, and helped to solve problems and not just complain."

    "Quality is uneven. Quite a few teachers seem to be in love with their own strictness and focus more on order and structure than on the joy of learning."

    "I have nothing good to say about this school. Some teachers are very rude and hard to work with. The academic programs are definitely lacking. Teachers & principal are not willing to working with parents for kid's special needs."

    "We're very impressed with the academic programs. Very professional staff and the music programs (especially strings:)are great. Many levels of music instruction with dedicated teachers."
