    "I went to this school, and I loved it. Most of the teachers love to teach. The kids will love it."

    "Fort Braden is a wonderful school! I have a stepson who is in 4th grade and my own son who is in 8th grade that attend this school. After a horrible experience at an inner city middle school for 6th and 7th grade, we moved to the Fort Braden community and my son has done much better at this school. The teachers and the faculty/staff/administration are all very concerned about each and every child succeeding. The principal is outstanding and interacts with the children in both elementary and middle school on a daily basis several times a day and eats lunch with them as well during the week. It is the responsibility of the parents to have close communication with the teachers either by e-mail or telephone to ensure that their child is receiving proper guidance and instruction. The teachers will and do reach out to all parents when there are any academic or behavioral issues. Very impressed with ALL faculty that I have come across from custodians to librarian(s) to administration. As a volunteer and previous intern and student teacher at the school I have first-hand knowledge as a teacher and as a parent that this school is an A+ school working each and every day to improve!"

    "My son who is 11 has been bullied for 2 years and it took me filing a compliant at the school board. My son has always been to blame the bullying. Quoteed' If he wants good friends, he needs to be a good friend. Who tells a child who is already being bullied something like that? I want my children out of Fort Braden. It use to be a great school now not so much."

    "This is a very good school! But the teachers have a problem with teaching... They don't have one on one help like some students need. And there lunch is not the best my kid comes home hungry because the school food is so nasty.. Like frozen and different stuff... She had been at this school for 8 going on 9 years and he school just gets worse with bullying but the staff try there hardest to stop bullying."

    "The teachers do not reach out to parents at all. The children are not being helped when they are falling behind...they are just left behind. More teacher oversight is needed. The teachers talk down to the students instead of speaking to them like a child. Every once in a while there will be a really good teacher. In the past year or so, they have gotten better on preventing bullying and security is better."
