    "I have seen some positive changes in this school since new leadership has taken over this school year. As with anything, change takes time but I feel that things are moving in the right direction. As for testing, that is in any school."

    "Quentin School has an ever changing staff. It is impossible for students to receive a quality education when the staff turn over is so high. The Littleton District has 200 instructional days but over 50 are spent testing kids for the entire day. Far too many days are spent testing kids instead of on actually instruction. Make Your Day is an punitive behavior program where kids are asked to face the wall and humiliated even in the hallways. Do not let your child attend an Littleton Elementary School! They are poorly managed from the very top down."

    "Quentin is overrun with behavior problems that the current discipline program, Make Your Day, does not address effectively. MYD is very restrictive and time consuming for teachers and parents alike and it focuses too much on self-reflection instead of enforcing consequences for bad behavior. I believe that trading MYD for a tougher and more traditional discipline will allow for fewer classroom interruptions and more focus on the content at hand, which will in turn boost test scores (perhaps eliminating the need for the 200-day calendar). On a positive note, Quentin will have some excellent new administrators next year, but they will still face challenges under MYD. I encourage everyone to do as I have done and write to the district about discontinuing use of the MYD program. Getting rid of MYD won't solve all of Quentin's (or the district's) problems, but I believe it's a step in the right direction."

    "Please don't enroll your child at this revolving door school. My child has had so many teachers and I know this is harmful to the kids. Why can't the uppers make sure that teachers stay at least a few years? Is the pay so low that they leave suddenly as if a tornado hit the building. Are the teachers supported? I discovered thee are about 1000 kids here. The staff calls the sections of the school maximum and minimum gang training grounds. If he general public knew the conditions of this school, they would pull their children out immediately!! Bad area, desperate people everywhere."

    "This school is very poorly managed. The teachers do care however with the lack of a good leader who allows parents to stand and talk during band concerts, Christmas (Holiday) concerts, etc. There is teachers who care however they are usually new teachers as seasoned teachers know the problems. The students are years behind in their education so the classes are behavior problems. The step (discipline) policy is ridiculous and causes parents to miss work and be disrupted because of students behavior. I am also a teacher (not at this school) and think that there needs to be a discipline change, a before and after school program for students who are severely (a lot of students are 4 grades behind) behind students. There should be a support system for this severely behind school. The one office staff is beyond excellent and goes above and beyond being helpful and knows parents and students by name. This school should only be a last resort for parents and staff as well as students."
