    "PARENTS AND CHILDREN, PLEASE BEWARE! I am sickened to say that since the current principal has been in place, this school has become nothing short of a gladiator yard! It is terrifying to hear of and see the horrific fights and bullying that takes place at this school and is not even acknowledged by the staff. I have been complaining for five months regarding the bullying of my child and it has finally turned physical and the administration including the district office acts as if it is no big deal. I have been calling and going to the school to let the principal know of the almost weekly fights that are video taped on her campus and she never even calls me back and has her staff tell me she is unavailable all of the time. Please if you value the safety of your child do not enroll them in this school and if they are already there do everything in your power as I am to get them out and put into another school. The principal at first will talk to you in a soft voice and try to come across sweet until you demand answers at which time she will just tell you to leave the office. She has NO control over the school and if too concerned with her reputation to ask for help in fixing it."

    "As a former student at Catalina, I had no qualms sending my own children there, until recently. My son is 8 y/o, and rather big for his age. He has been bullied and is growing numb to the teachers and administrations staff BLATANT disregard for him and his safety. He is an A-B average student, has never even got a C, and for some reason he has been getting into fights on the playground almost every other day. My son knows not to fight unless provoked. Recently, Someone threw a football at his face and HE got 3 days detention for it, and the other child not one thing! Another instance, he was on the playground, and to my understanding had not done anything, to deserve this, but someones child, came up to him and punched him in the eye, and my son also got in trouble yet again for this instance, because he retaliated by not even doing anything physical, but verbal. This happened all within a month. I literally live across the street from this school, and am MAKING SURE my son gets his variance to attend a different, more uniform school in the future. I used to love this school, now I'am doing all I can to get my child away from it. Get yourselves together Catalina Staff."

    "I think Catalina is a great school for kids. The teachers always care for the students and everyone respects each other. Yes catalina has had some issues in the the past but that doesn't really matter! It's all about character. The new princable isn't the best but we all hold. Up Catalina isn't in the best neighborhood but that doesn't mean it isn't a good school. I recommend Catalina for all kids."
