    The principal and Ap are incompetent. Principal is rude standoffish doesn't know anything and instead puts up a rude front to mask his incompetence.

    My son attends PreK and I am so sorry I sent him here. Besides the fact that he loves his teacher this school is terrible. The administration staff are incompetent lazy and careless. I have turned in a change of number emergency form only with the last four digits of my number different atleast 4 times since September of 2013. Today I received a call from my mother that my child had an accident in class because they still have not changed my phone number. I had to sit in front of the secretary and watch her change my number to be sure that it was done which is redo upload. Especially since I've spoken to her before and she told me she was working on that as we were speaking. The cafeteria servers are unfriendly they yell at the children and don't want to keep the cafeteria clean. The other day my son told me that he saw a mouse in his class room. The parents are uninvolved in their students learning and the children are way behind in learning. Thankfully he will be attended another school next year hopefully in the county.

    This is the worst school my children ever attended! The principal lacks the leadership skills necessary to run this school and blames the community. Well All I can say is when you have a principal who just stands there while allowing children to curse and carry on what do you expect? He needs to get a handle on this school or let someone else takeover. I expressed my concerns to him and was met with a defensive attitude and excuses. To top it off he wanted me to come in and convey my concerns to his staff (Uh hello brother you should be able to do that yourself I have my own job. This is what you are paid for.) All in all most of the staff is unprofessional and dress as if they are going to the club. Lead by example Guilford and give these kids a chance!

    My daughter attended Guolford for two years . There are teachers there that do have a true interested in your chldren and try to offer as much help as possiblt. However I had an issue with students with behavorial issues and academic issues being mixed in with the other students. It caused my daughter to be in an enviornment that was chaotic and rather unproductive. There were not many extracurricular activities no foreign languages as well as parent involvement was not good at all.

    The academic programs could be better. School does not offer foreign languages. There is no playground equipment. The sports program is limited to basketball and that is an extracurricular activity. There are no extracurricular activities other than basketball. I see very little parent involvement. The school just got a music teacher. The students do not have instruments. Children who misbehave at other schools are transferred to Guilford. Classes are integrated with children who can concentrate and work with children who are disrupted and misbehave.
