    So glad this school received a new principal and administrative staff. The old principal used to be more concerned with how nice and clean the school looked than how the students behaved both socially and academically. Never once did I see him interact with a child he would always have someone else do that job to keep his hands clean. Not only did he not show concern towards his students (and you could tell by the low API score of 2010) but he was also very rude and threatening towards teachers and staff. As a leader you should a make your staff and faculty feel comfortable and at home and that attitude will reflect towards the children. FdO has way better chances now without him.

    You are getting the best principal any school could ever have. How do I know this? Because it's our principal who is leaving us to help out your school. I hope you welcome him with open arms. He's the best! He brought great energy to our elementary school. Established great programs and positive incentives for the students. We are losing a great guy but we'll be good. We're a strong school as it is. Good luck to you guys and congratulations too!

    in my opinon some teachers don't like to deal with certain children who don't behave in the way they expect but I believe It really depends upon the teachers approach at seeing each child as an individual human being and getting to know them by the uniqueness of each child because every child is different. So far my experiences with the teachers willingness to get to know the child individually and viewing them as a unique person has not been a problem. in the future if a conflict I believe in changing the child's teacher for a teacher who us willing to take that extra step in helping that child succeed.

    I rate this school very high however I am disappointed in their judgement for seeing their talented children. Although I'm going to be biased regarding my child he is extremely intelligent and well received by both his peers and the faculty. He has been student of the month every year since being there and well known by 1st graders to 6th graders. I have a strong sense as to why he has been overlooked however I will continue to support the school and the teachers.
