    "This school has some nice teachers however that doesn't make up for them not paying attention to their students. My son is constantly bullied, pushed, teased, he's been hit, bruised, cut, and now he was choked and no one even saw or acted on it. Not acceptable and we are moving to a better school district."

    "My children attend darden. I was very happy with their experience over all, compared to their last school. My children were happy, they didn't have many issues with teachers or students their grades improved. This took a lot of stress off of me. So far darden is a good school."

    "For Kindergarten my child went to PHM. First grade she went to Darden, and I was not impressed. The material they learned in first grade at Darden, we learned in Kindergarten at PHM."

    "Darden has been a great school for my children. The music program has been the highlight for both my children. They can't wait to go to that class. All the teachers seem to be very caring. I am very happy with the programs there. Good school for students. Unbelievable music presentations!"

    "My biggest issue with this school is the recesses. There is one 15 minute recess a day, and in winter months when it is too cold, or rainy days, they sit down and watch a show for 15 minutes and no talking/wiggling is allowed. They don't even get to run around in the gym. At recess they are not allowed to run, or yell. Despite the lack of recess time, my kids did thrive and learned a lot. Their first year there was difficult because both of my children didn't have what I considered to be good teachers (one yelled a lot, even when I was there helping). But their second year there was much better because they had wonderful teachers. This school is just okay. I would recommend living in Granger instead of South Bend and going to that school district as it is much better."
