    "This school neither has "excellent teachers" or an "awesome music program". I volunteered a lot and herd on many occasions teachers and administrators speaking negatively about parents and students which I find to be revolting and completely inappropriate. The music teacher Mr. Platt yells at students and shows no patience for teaching them. The principal is someone you can't talk to. She will ignore anything you say, its like talking to a brick wall. All things considered this school serves its purpose of keeping all of the Special Education students in one campus segregated and watched over by a very rigid individual who will not allow parents of Special Ed kids to be involved in the school at all. I happen to not have this issue but I know many other parents that do. We all need to band together somehow and make a difference. Seeing the way that some of the Special Ed kids are treated just makes my sick. Some parents appear to be wearing rose colored lenses and can't bring themselves to admit that this school has some very serious issues starting with the principal. I hope someone takes what is going on in this school seriously and launches an investigation ASAP."

    "The kids from Durham Elementary transferred to a newly built school last year (2011) -- the new school is called Walnut Grove Elementary. My kid absolutely loved her last year (the first year that it was open), primarily because of the excellent teachers. Parents are very involved in this school and I was impressed by the computer labs, physical education, and of course the awesome music programs."

    "I can't begin to express the vast differences in Durham and the previous school in another county our child attended. Dr. McIlvain runs a tight ship yes. but for the purpose of education, emotional stability, safety and acceptance of divercity. Our special needs child is no longer caught up in a principal only interested in her own ego and petty gossip. Our child is excelling with the wonderful teacher and staff in the Life Skills class. The openess to provide true Inclusion/not token false Inclusion is amazing. We had our first ARD without losing sleep and left wondering if it had truly been real because we did not have to fight for any of our child's rights for a good education. Our child is reading signs and has never been happier since enrolling in Durham Elementary School. I pity the parents that are still fighting other school systems."

    "The teachers here are really terrific and the attitudes and atmosphere are really positive. Fund raising and volunteering is a big deal here though and you are consistantly being asked to pay into the pot or volunteer for something or other. But the bottom line - My children are flourishing here!"
