    My child has gone to this school for two years. My level of satisfaction has been lowered due to staff that are unwilling to step up to the plate for the greater good of academic sucess and the incessant bullying from other students that is met with a look away from teachers. I am selling my home to move to another neighbourhood so that my child has a chance academically. If you don't care about your childs success in life than this is the school for you.

    With 2 kids at Molholm I see teachers who work very hard for their students. The teachers care a lot about their students and they seem to get along very well as a staff. The principal and AP also always put the kids first.

    This was the first time I went to Molholm and I was very happy with the teachers and principal and assistant principal very impressed with this school My grandson is going to kindergarten and I believe this school will change him from the class clown to a good school boy

    There has been an amazing transformation of the school since the new principal and assistant principal took over in 2005. Before I never felt welcome in that school but now being made to feel welcome is a top priority. The principal and teachers show great courage and leadership and the assistant principal has made school fun for the kids by bringing in rich and highly educational activities for my kids. They really work hard to make school safe and meaningful. We almost switched schools but now never would.

    I feel that the principal and teachers care about the academic achievements of the students and have been working hard to bring up the CSAP scores. However my child has been very unhappy at Molholm due to the constant teasing and name calling by other children. As a parent I feel that we do need to get more involved but I also feel that the bully's are not getting the discipline that they need to stop them from continuiously bullying other children. It seems to be a vicious cycle that keeps going and going.

    Do not work with parents for what is best for your child unless your willing to label the child. Does not try to clear up missunderstandings. Have more days off than any other school. In general I don't feel that they put out effort for best interest of students are out for best interest of staff.
