    "I ADORE every single teacher my children have had. The foundation and PTA are trying to get thing going. The parking situation is horrendous, and they are trying something new this year, it is a bit better, but the school was not designed for this many parents to be driving in. The Principal is just very cold, and not very warm and inviting. She "labels" families, and we've been branded. You can just tell by the way you are treated. Not soo cool. If there were not great teachers, we'd be out in a hot second."

    "Highland Ranch is a good school with horrible principle Ms.Anita Watson. She lacks leadership skills and is rude. My daughter is in 5th grade now and is in Highland Ranch since KG. All the teachers are wonderful and communicate really well. PTA and Foundation are doing lot of good things for the kids. But this school needs good principle."

    "I can sum it up quite simple. The principal is horrible. Ms. Watson is very rude, not professional at all and a big bully! It is obvious why so many leave this school not to mention that EVERY Complaint has the principal listed in it. She has even had court issued restraining orders by parents due to her bullying!"

    "Dangerous levels of bullying at this school. Principal is totally inadequate in dealing with this. The school office staff is unfriendly and rude. I would not recommend anyone sending their child to this school."

    "Our daughter has been at this school for 4 years. It's a great school with a professional staff, including Ms Watson! It is unfortunate that parents with children with behavioral problems chose to blame staff members, however those of us who have children who are there to learn and not be a problem know what's really going on with these accusations. I, for one, couldn't be happier when these parents transfer their child to another school so our children can focus on getting an education. Also, kudos to Ms Harris, Ms Levchenko, & Mr Flanders all are excellent teachers!"
