    "My son started here last year and has benefitted tremendously. The culture of the school is one of community, concern, and teamwork. I would highly recommend this school to others. Great administration and leadership is present."

    "There are many dedicated, wonderful professionals working at this school. These teachers truly care about their students and go above and beyond the call of duty with what little they are provided to give them the best education possible. That being said, there are a few who are just sitting on a high salary and need to retire. The worst aspect of this school is most definitely the principal. He is one of the types that wears a fake smile to your face and is almost impossible to see on a school day. The school really does go through an assistant principal every other year or so and I am sure working with Olavarria has something to do with it. If your child does attend this school you will know if they have a good teacher or not based on their progress and happiness; if you are unfortunate enough to get a chair warmer for a teacher keep on top of them and good luck finding the principal."

    "The school keeps getting worse each year. I have a child in 5th grade one in and 3rd. The 5th grade class has 29 kids in it! the 3rd has 27. It's huge, there are over 1500 kids. One psychologist, One social worker( that we share with other schools) we get a new Asst. principle every 2 years, it's basically a training school for admin. The Principle is not helpful, when you can see him, but I hear he is top notch at enforcing lunch room behavior, the kids say he yells a lot. If your child is 504 or IEP you have to watch them like hawks just to make sure you get your services. The books are old. There are no standards for teachers as to websites or discipline, they all run there own ships; some are like pirates. There are some amazing teachers and there are many people who need a career change. There is a bullying problem, problem being they don't handle the situations effectively. For example, there is a disconnect between the school and transportation. If something happens on the bus, the school, asst principle, teacher, may not be notified - that is your job.When a child that has loved school for years asks to be home-schooled, you have a problem. I would love to move."

    "This school sucks! Teachers do not have text books, the kids don't either. I was told that the teachers are allowed to "google" their assignments. Good luck finding the information that they find because you will never find it. The kids have 5 notebooks which they will hand write their own notes to study from. My son is in the third grade and I can barley read his hand writing. When I showed the assistant principal his " journal" and asked if he could read it to study with his kids and he just looked at me. My guesses are that his child would not be in a school where he had to write his own text books. The computer labs were taken away also. Many teachers from e school have told me its a horrible way of teaching but none of the know why their is no books,. If your child needs extra help the Gayhead teachers will tutor for $40/hr cash knowing their school sucks and parents have to pay!!! The principal is like OZ you will never be able to get in to see him!"
