    "parents complain a lot about the schools their children attend. Its up to the parents getting involved in schools that will make a difference. my daughter went to kistler from kindergarten to 6th grade. She had a few issues, and all were resolved thanks to the teachers help. Bullying is in every school, and kistler will not tolerate it. When my daughter needed help in math, her teacher gave me web sites to go on to help. When her teacher knew she loved Science, he recommended the WEBS program for her over the summer. It was the best experience she ever had over her summers! Lets make our schools a better place, its up to all of us, not just the teachers. I feel the teachers were kind, and did the best they could with the large classes of students."

    "And lets not forget about the silly policys about dying hair of piercing( face/ears). I'm sorry but this is my child, who are you to tell me that if they wanted more then two piercings in their ear, and I allow it,who are you to tell me no? WHat ever happened to expressing ones self? I am not saying go ahead and connect all your piercing together and hang a weight to it. But come on since when is dying your hair and having multipul piercing distracting?"

    "The principal and staff are friendly and caring. I've only had issues with one teacher in the 6 years my kids have been attending, but she's about to retire. The gifted program is adequate. However, one of my two children has been failing math for years and I've asked every year for help for him and no one has bothered, despite the many resources the school handbook lists. I feel that teachers are reluctant to address black students' poor behavior with the severity they do the white students. In addition, the dress code is ridiculously strict and a hardship to parents."

    "FIrst thing I would have to say is more about WIlkes Barre schools in general. The dress code is ridiculous. We shouldn't NOR can afford to have kids use 2 outifts a day one for school and the other for play. Second its absurd for some people on here to complain about a lack of a kindergarten graduating ceremony. As for the Principal he is a no BS person so he doesn't give the "welcoming" feeling but hes the principal and needs to be stern. My kids do very well in this school and have no issues with any of their teachers."
