    "This school is fabulous! And for the 2011-2012 school year, it has progessed greatly! Instead of boring school work that the students could care less about, the teachers challenge the pupils in a fun, new way. The students who are coming back from the Washington Elementary schools are very welcoming to new kids. My daughter, coming from Deer Valley Unified School District, is only 3 weeks into school and has already made several dozens of friends. The learning process is advanced; Very comprehendable to the pupils, and much better then other districts. Don't hesitate to send your child to this school! You and your student will be very satisfied."

    "This is my second child to attend DF. My daughter had nothing but problems from overbearing teachers that wanted to assert their position in life and try to rule with ridiculous rules and with an iron fist. Some teachers were very nice and she still talks about them to this day. Others were just non responsive...to my daughter and to me. Now my son is there with the same silly rules (read other reviews about book bags/back packs, no homework). A couple of his teachers are great. He looks forward to their classes because he knows they care. Others not so much. It's because of schools like DF that I understand why AZ is ranked 49th in the U.S. in education."

    "Two words to describe this school. 'Hypersensitive & Paranoid' This school has the most ridicules rules that I feel has effected my daughter's education there. This school concerns itself more with restricting the use of things like bookbags in the name of safty. I feel that ridiculous rule is effecting the kids education. This school will not allow bookbags (Back Packs) and they do not provide lockers for the students. So because of this, the students do not bring home books. The school does not set up the kids for homework and home studies with this policy. This school has been doing this for years. How has this been going on for so long? I just do not get it. My daughter is in the last part of her 8th grade and I am worried about how it will be for her when she goes into Greenway High School and not have the proper preparation that she should have gotten in middle school. So now she will not have the homework and studying skills that she will need when she starts her Freshman year? The educators in this school district really need to look into this school's policies and rethink if this is really in the best interest for the students. Their learning and their safety. I just do not think so. If I was to do it over, I would have considered another school for my daughter."
