    "Sounds like alot of crying. I'm not sure what school parents have been to in the past, but since when is teachers being nice a requirement to teach? Is this what happens when we don't teach our kids to be independant? They have to memorize "5" digits to eat lunch! Oh my! How will they ever spell their name if it's over "5" letters? Grow up, send your kids to school! They are not surrounded by gangs nor intercity problems like the big cities are. If you don't like it, enroll your kids into a private school. But lets be honest, if the teachers are mean, it's probably cause you raised a brat."

    "Mrs. Mata needs to retire for sure!! She is mean! If she does not like your child, she will make your child's school year miserable. It happened to mine. I agree with the previous comment, she does favor certain kids and parents."

    "The kids actually have a card that they scan at the lunch cashier, I just thought to let you and other parents know. Kids in the past had to remember their 3 digit #s ( not 5) until this year. I have found the staff very helpful in my opinion, I would volunteer an hour or so ( if you have of course one free hour in a week or a month) if I were you to get to know the school staff better instead of just judging them. I am a working mom and I could squeeze 4 hours a week. (for example: instead of chatting on Facebook or other social media, I dedicate my time into my daughters schooling) in both kindergarten and 3rd grade classes. I am very thankful for NVES. Thank you for reading my comment and I wish all the parents and their children only the best."

    "I don't care what that other person says because EVERY person we have came across in that school, whether a teacher or faculty, they were ALL mean, rude, and other stuff I cant say. Even the lunch lady was rude and mean. They expect kindergarten kids to remember a 5 digit number for their lunch code. They just started school people. My son doesn't like this school. He complains they make them play outside when it is over 100 degrees. He also comes home STARVING since other kids cut in front of him and he doesn't get time to eat or drink ANYTHING! What kind of place is this? If I had the money, I would be moving to another school district because this place has only shown us very mean and uncaring people who should not be working at a school. If you can afford to, please DO NOT send your child here. We ran into another parent, different grade student, doesn't get to go to the bathroom. These people are all about themselves and not there for our children. If this other parent has great comments, they must be paying for their kids success and special treatment. Us poor people cannot do that."

    "I just read all these reviews, & I feel like the negative comments are totally one sided. I have two kids enrolled here, and BOTH my kids are advanced. They have excelled in their studies & love their school! The teachers we've had to date have all been awesome, & the admin staff has met our needs. Sure some ARE cranky, but not all are, and that is not fair to group them all as uncaring. The principal is very easy to work with, & I have never had any issues with her. Every time I have had a concern, they listen. Maybe some things are not perfect, but overall, it's an awesome school! The current PTA is very dedicated, and I give kudos to those people who care enough to donate their time to our kids. I highly recommend this school, & suggest that if you can ever volunteer, you should. Parent involvement is very important! The more volunteers, the better! The class sizes have been increasing, that is only complaint I have. Nicolas is a distinguished school too. Parents definitely need to be involved in their kids' homework. Parents lack of involvement in their kids' homework make their kids suffer, and that is not the school's fault. I am personally very happy with this school."
