    "Teachers and staff really are great, but in all honesty the principal does not equally care about all students/parents. She does not unify the school, nor show leadership. The after school program is a good space for kids. Only positive experiences with our teachers, but horrible experiences trying to communicate with the principal. If rating the school independent of leadership, I'd give it four stars. Facilities, compared to many other schools, are small. No separate play area for Kinders/first graders."

    "I work at HM & it's a great school. Some of these posts are very disheartening. I love my school& the direction in which it's headed. This school is centered around student achievement so if the principal has empowered students and staff to become leaders of morning circle,what is the charge? I'm a dear friend of the secretary.Please be clear that she has never spoken an ill word of the admin at this school. Her leaving was an independent decision based on what was best for her.To infer that her choice is a "red flag "is extremely misleading and speaks to how a small minority of folks at this school inflate and misconstrue information just to support their experience. FYI, that's considered lying. Truth: we have moved to a fee based program. But not many schools in SF offer a free morning/afterschool program. Sfusd reapplied for the grant but our school was not selected to receive it. Truth:The information became available in June at an ice cream social and since that time the administration has worked hard to offer an affordable program and has since apologized. The untruthful gossip must stop. If you are unhappy please do what is best for you but don't throw dirt in the process."

    "I love the principal. She is amazing, truthful and is interactive with every student. She comes on hours that are not on her work day! I know there are some parents who expect to be treated like royalty, but our principal cares about creating a cohesive environment that includes both view points. The negative reviews you see, are by parents who don't go to this school anymore. We have an amazing staff, and principal! WE LOve our students! The after school program and before school program was based on a grant that a lot of schools lost based on free and reduced lunch status. Let us have a great year, roll up our sleeves and have a fabulous 2013/2014 school year!"

    "I selected this school because I was referred by a staff member. After reviewing other schools demographics I realized that Harvey Milk closely met my needs as a diversified school. I have an incoming 1st grader who I teach how to celebrate and respect not only her differences, but that of others. The year before last I was indirectly in the know about what was going on at this school. I attended a community meeting as a guest and some of the parents there were very abrasive and had a downright abusive tone toward the principal, staff, and one another.I can only assume that the negative posts are from those same parents. I am coming to HMCRA to roll up my sleeves and help get the work done for the betterment of ALL children, including mine. If my child is happy then so am I. The focus has shifted due to a sense of entitlement. I heard that entitlement in a post written earlier about the contribution of increasing test scores due to middle class families. AND??? Equity is about making sure everyone has access to the same thing. A cohesive community should model that. This have and have not mentality is systemic yet I still long to be a part of this school because I seek change."
