    "I sent my daughter to this school for Kindergarten it was the worst mistake I have ever made. Her teacher was good but the students are violent and have no home training. Moreover, the parent involvement is horrible. My daughter would come home sad everyday compared to now where she loves the kids, teachers and enjoys going to school. It's sad when your child comes home and ask if she's Mexican (students were asking her). My daughter is now in Kyrene Ahwatukee area and was the best decision I made for her. If you are an involved parent and have the means do not send your child to this school It looks nice the staff is good IT"S the parents and it shows through behavior of the students. Last two points Her kindergarten teacher would tell us that kids In Kindergarten would talk about choking, stabbing and beating other kids up this is kindergarten. Myself while walking to the car a second grader calls a little girl a B** and says get your A** over here just not a good environment. The second star is for the staff and the technology they try to add."

    "My son really enjoys this school and his teacher last year was amazing! The school itself is beautiful, and the other teachers I have chatted with seemed nice and welcoming. I do believe the office staff needs to be a little friendlier. I know it can get overwhelming up front but being approachable is apart of the job. The only issue I really had last year was that in the summer the classroom seemed really warm, and my son would come home saying it was hot inside. Students can achieve more in a comfortable environment, so I hope to see an improvement this year."

    "My daughter has attended this school since Kindergarten (Fall 2010), thus far I am very happy to say we will continue to drive her daily (6 miles away) as it has been wonderful. Scales has a great atmosphere, it is not too large and the turn over of teachers is low. A great asset to this school is the PACE program!"

    "Exactly, I am with all the parents on our family being very dissapointed Dr. Diokno was no longer the principle at my child's fav. school. I noticed at first the energy you felt when walking in the office kids were smiling, and parents talking feeling comfortable there-durring meet the teacher days as well both years we noticed the new principle is very very unaproachable-she just passed right thru us like if we didn't exist We introduced ourselves to shake her hand, she never looked at us and she yelled at all the students and parents-with her hand outreached "everyone leave the office, you should not be in this area. That was my first encounter with her-my family tried to give her and the assistant principle a second chance-durring one of my visits, seemed like the same thing all over again. I noticed the receptionist very timid around them-she never used to be that way. When Mr. Diokno was there she would always say hello out loud and not feel so punished. Mr. Diokno would even come out and say hello , wave with a smile. Even if he was busy. Upon noticing this school dropped dramatically in grades we are moving our child out of there, we love the teachers very much."

    "My chid attended Scales for the 2011-2012 schol year. We had a great experience there.I have heard great things about Dr. D,however, I have not had any issues or concerns with MaArtha Jacobo. The current principal there. There was a bullying isue that arose in the begining of the year and as expected it was dealt with right away and proffessionally. My child wants to attend Scales for the 2012-2013 school year, I know it's becuase he is happy there. Thank youMrs. Robinson( Kindergarden Teacher) for a great experience!!"
