    "New principal is making this school into a military school and stripping kids of their creativity. They are no longer allowed to make their own decisions, they predetermined for them. The old principal was much better than this dictator. Parents are not allowed to surprise visit their children to see how they are being treated. How do you know if your child is being treated with dignity? If I wanted my children in military school, I'd pay for it. The new teaching staff are just as dronelike and uncaring about the students as the new administrative regime."

    "Parents beware, no creativity or individuality allowed at this school. The principality is a dictatorship, the teachers are hateful and the kids are miserable. The students who need special services are no longer receiving help, there isn't enough need so the kids that need it won't be getting it. Only full day support for learning is for grades 3-5, pk-2 doesn't have a teacher in the building. The poorest children in the district are being taught at an early age not to expect a good education because the school system deems them unworthy because of their economic status. The dictator only cares about her appearance and not the needs of the students or aspirations that the parents have for their offspring. Norman Schools puts the worst, most unwanted teachers at the poorest school in the district and chose the unfriendliest, most repugnant person in the state to rule her new regime. Transfer or homeschool if you can. Shame on Norman schools for doing this to our kids. Instead of friendly, caring teachers we get old hags past their prime to teach our kids."

    "The teachers are wonderful and the principal is outstanding... Unfortunately, they cannot combat the problems of a society of children whose parents want a school to raise their kids for them instead of just give them the education they need. These parents let their children interfere with other kids learning. You can see this in a post where a parent gave a bad review because the school didn't provide her child with counseling...since when did become a school issue. School is for learning, not daycare!"

    "Kennedy Elementary could really use some help. The teachers here have the worst attitudes, with the exception of a few. The principal is a very nice guy, but the "nice guy" attitude is not beneficial to the enhancement of the school. This school has gotten worse over the past few years. All of the best teachers leave because they refuse to teach in such a hostile environment. It takes team work and strong leadership to properly run a school. Unfortunately Kennedy is lacking these crucial elements. Teachers talk smart to the students, and run the lunch room like a concentration camp. Teachers or volunteers on lunch duty stand there and yell at the children to "shut up" and be quiet. They blow whistles inside the cafeteria! This school has great potential if the principal had enough backbone to fire some of the worthless teachers here. Also, I must add that the treatment of the students here is due in large part to the lack of parent involvement. If you are thinking about moving to this area, please reconsider, because this is the worst school in NPS. And BTW do not be fooled by the 5 star posts, that was no doubt a faculty member. Very sad indeed!"

    "I went to the Principal the first week of school. We had just moved to the area. My son had counseling, both individual and group, at his former school. They also had a mentoring program that he was involved with. I voiced all of this to the Principal because I wanted to ensure a smooth transition. His response was that they had nothing like this available and that I should seek outside counseling for my child. I am a single parent. My co-pays for counseling would be $20 per week. I struggle just to pay the utility bills and rent at home. I was asking for help from this school and his response was to call DHS and say I was not providing counseling for my child. Needless to say this did not inspire my trust. I went to him for help and received nothing but a visit from a DHS caseworker. The open classroom concept is not at all helpful for a child's concentration. I wound up pulling him from this school and placing him in a private setting."
