    "Dreadful, horrible school! Keep your kids away, if you value their love of learning and your sanity. It's impossible to find out necessary information or get a straight answer from anyone in this place about even the most basic questions."

    "My daughter has been in is this school for about 6 months now and I am beyond disappointed in the experience. It is impossible to speak with either teachers or staff, they isolate themselves beyond a layer of low level, rude and disrespectful "helpers". The teachers never come forward with the students, and do not make themselves available to interact with the parents. It is impossible to get a simple return phone call from the administration. The only thing my daughter has actually learned this year is how to take the leap test. There is no interest in teaching for understanding, which would lead to better leap scores by default, just rote memorization of leap practice material. We are giving serious consideration to homeschooling after this experience. Just yesterday I found out that my daughter's teacher has been basically bribing the students into behaving with sugary snacks - which we were not notified would be given and were not given the option to approve or disapprove, yet parents are not allowed to send such foods for snacks as they are disallowed by the school handbook. I have never had a positive interaction here and my daughter's education is suffering to boot!"

    "I'm a certified substitute teacher so I go to different schools & OMG I told them in the office never to call me again to sub for their teachers there ever again. The kids are very rough, I had kids throwing desks at me, (2nd graders) no respect for authority or adults. They don't respect their teachers so how will they respect the subs. Absolutely chaotic. The teachers are there for the paychecks they look worn out. They don't even ask if we (subs) need anything like at other schools. The teachers are rude & act as if they don't want to be there, I just heard yelling & yelling from class to class. It was the worst experience ever. I feel bad for students that are wanting to learn! Don't send your children to Abney! Scary & I'm an adult! Seriously I'm 100 percent serious. Never again will I sub there!!!!!"

    "I have only been involved with the school for a little over a month and I am extremely disappointed with it. We moved here over the summer and everyone told me not to send my kids to this school, but I ignored it since I thought I would try to support the public school system. I'm not sure how much longer I will give it before looking into other options. It's disorganized, my son is afraid of his teacher, the crossing guard in front the the school is so rude I can't even believe it. I actually worry about my kids every day that they go there. Not a good feeling."

    "I agree with some of the other reviews that Abney gets a bad rap. I feel as though this is partly do to its location. The administration is wonderful and if you are a caring supportive parent you can really see how great of a school this is! My daughter went here for kindergarten even though we were hesistant we beleive in supporting our public schools! We were pleasantly surprised and I have talked very highly of the school ever since! My daughter has since been to two other schools and I still feel strongly about abney!"
