    "I have also dealt with both current and former principals, and I agree that Morris is ill equipped to handle the concerns of parents. I find her dismissive and unapproachable. I'm a parent with a strong parent network and know that this feeling is shared among others. Her demeanor is worrisome and disappointing, especially in contrast with a formidable leader like Dr. Pennyman. As far as the teacher quality, I would say that the more experienced teachers are decent, but nothing special. I think the teachers fall short in meeting the needs of students who have learning differences. They speak a good game at IEP meetings about learning objectives and interventions, but fall short in personalizing students' academic/social needs. I recognize that this is not easy to do in a public school setting and therefore, I maintain, there is nothing special about the this school. In sum, the "good" kid who learns well and doesn't have behavioral issues will be fine in this ordinary place."

    "I could not agree more with the parent who mentioned that the school has gone downhill since Dr. Pennyman left. She was a great principal: pleasant, inclusive and a great communicator. The leadership in the school is now lacking. Mrs Morris deals with every parent concern as a problem rather than an opportunity for improvement. I am not surprised that the school rating has gone down since Dr. Pennyman left. Even teachers don't take ownership of decisions made in their classroom. Instead you are automatically relegated to Mrs Morris whose decisions are often unclear and arbitrary. The teachers seem less empowered with her leading the school.."

    "I couldn't disagree more. Mrs. Morris is an outstanding leader and the morale of the school has improved tenfold since Dr. Pennymans departure. I also have a student with special needs and the staff and teachers have worked with me hand in hand since kindergarten. We love the school and the community...it's truly a wonderful place to raise your children."

    "Sadly this school has gone downhill since Dr Pennyman left. This is an OK school if your child doesnt have special needs. Unfortunately many concerns fall on deaf ears and children continue to be placed with inexperienced teachers who are not equipt to deal with them. The special education program leaves much to be desired. At least with Dr Pennyman you had a voice that at least was heard."
