    "I am an eight grade student here and I have gone here since around 2nd grade. This school is honestly all I know but it was pretty mediocre with the administration from the past few years. But recently we have gotten a new administration and moral has improved and I'm almost certain those previous reviews were angry parents who can't tell their child/children to shrug it off. Wouldn't hurt to tell them nothing anyone says about them really matters. And for those saying Ms. Mitchell and Mr. Thompson are "Bully Teachers" their kids are just immature and misbehave, and are given proper consequences, if you're disrespectful to the teachers, you're going to be talked to. As far as the actual education, it's all based on how your child acts within the classroom. The teachers DO teach, you just have to pay attention. For those with children with bad grades and blame the the teachers, maybe you should do a double take. Some teacher's methods may seem questionable at times, but you have pay attention to the lessons and not socialize during class. I believe Mr. Thompson's classroom is an amazing environment to get work done, we work quietly for ten minutes and are allowed to socialize for 2."

    "The current administration (Truett and Hollowell) at this school is the lowest level of life! They are horrendously cruel to parents and students. There are two upper grade bully teachers (Thompson and Mitchell). I can't wait for summer, as we are enrolling our child in another school!"

    "My kids have been at the school for the past 4 years. They're now in 2nd and 4th grade. Since my kids are in the lower grades, I haven't witnessed the bullying other reviews are talking about. The main reason I keep my kids at this school are the teachers -- my kids have had great teachers every year. The teachers and staff are awesome and truly want the kids to succeed. The principal for the first 3 years was awful and contributed to much of the low school morale and problem areas. We have a new principal this year and so far all seems okay, although that's yet to be determined."

    "My kids having been going to this school since its grand opening day. The past principle was so bad that she finally was transferred to the high school level as an Asst. principle. The current Principle may not be any better. There is a 6th grade female teacher screams at her students, and even worries some of her fellow teachers with her behaviors, yet nothing is done. This school is such a disappointment. Luckily my kids have avoided all the chaos."

    "Absolutely HORRIBLE school!!! Principal lacks PROPER discipline both a s principal and disciplinary. Bullies seem to be very common in that school. Very few "good" teachers who actually CARE about the children they are teaching. The IEP teachers seem to lack what they are "qualified" to do??!! Just an absolutely HORRIBLE school."
