Ballantyne Elementary is a PROFOUND DISAPPOINTMENT. We were a part of the school from its opening in 2008 until last year when we pulled our youngest out and sent her to private school. There is no mystery about what is wrong. The PRINCIPAL is the poorest excuse of a leader I have EVER seen. I'm a former teacher. Read all the reviews. The office staff IS abysmal. There is a problem with the overall poor quality of the teaching staff. I feel sorry for the two or three excellent teachers still there however the high number of INCOMPETENT staff is unacceptable. There is a serious MORAL PROBLEM and a higher than average employee TURNOVER RATE. Look for ratings and testing scores to continue to DECLINE until the PRINCIPAL is replaced. The right administrator could make a PROFOUND difference. This school is an embarrassment in a district with an EXCELLENT MIDDLE and HIGH school. The ineffactiveness in addressing bullying and other significant behavioral issues results in a school that isn't safe. The one star rating is for the few good teachers on staff. The rest of the school warrants a rating of zero stars. ALL CHILDREN DESERVE BETTER THAN THIS PRINCIPAL.
