    I do not like the new principle at all this year. First off we no longer can wait in the lobby for our kids. We have to go sit outside or in our car. I called an attorney and said we are allowed to go in and check on our kids anytime of day and that we should be able to sit in the lobby and wait. are they hiding something. Then if your child has a birthday and would like to bring treats you can not go into the classroom like you use to they have the secretary do it. Also the principle calls the police if she sees you parked in the fire lane where else can we park make better parking then . Take out the front park to make more parking available then. Also upset about the Halloween party no more parade and having it on the 28th instead of the 31st come on. This is just sad the kids look forward to it to. This principle needs to go some where else.....

    I have three kids at trumble and just love it! The teachers are great the principal is hands on and the council is outstanding. She was key in helping my son adjust after my husband returned from deployment. We love Trumble Park!

    This school does it all right. I have 4 children who have gone through Trumble Park the youngest of whom is still there. We have needed both special education and gifted services and have always felt this school did a great job of educating on all levels. They actively work to reduce bullying and increase acceptance of differences. The principal is one of the best and most caring on the area and the staff is wonderful. Read the previous negative reviews with skepticism. They look as if several were written by the same person.

    I am very disappointed with Trumble Park as I feel like The principal and the staff act as if they are still in high school. Thier is bullying in the school and the teachers make fun of the students. The school prides themselves on purple hands day and complete confidentiality; to the contrary the counselor is probably one of the worst hipcrates of them all. I only want the absolute best for my children and unfortunaly I need to remove my family from all of this. Maybe when the principal retire's it will get better.

    R-U-N from Trumble Park Elementary! Not a school for ANY special needs child. If they don't conform to behavioral attentive or ability norms their little lives are either miserable or they're "left in the dust." The "powers that be" want to parent my children -even after school & weekends- and they are unwilling to support parent decisions. I had to request my son be evaluated for ADHD. Their special ed teacher FINALLY completed an evaluation; her results were negative. HOWEVER according to evaluations by his pediatrician and psychiatrist he has ADD and an Anxiety Disorder. First on the list we changed schools. He had to completely re-do his kindergarten year. To this day he ADORES his caring. consistent and structured EXPERIENCED kindergarten teacher. My older daughter was also moved at that time. She needed to attend after-school classes to 'catch-up' to the reading & writing standards required for her grade level. BOTH children are now feeling and seeing success from their efforts. If your HAVE to attend TP beware the counselor; she runs the show. While appearing concerned and caring her face has two sides. R-U-N from Trumble Park Elementary!

    The school is set up for students who are all the same.. it's your basic simple minded small town quality. Not all kids learn the same look the same act the same Trumble isn't equipped to handle anything but "sheep." I raised my kids to stand up for themselves to question what they don't believe to be right.. not to disrespect authority just to know that just because someone is an adult doesn't make them right. This mentality is not embraced or even accepted in this school. Kids who are not without flaw should steer clear.. God forbid who may have ADD or ADHD.. if you don't want your child stuck on a "behavior plan" in a "special" class or doped up on meds.. I'd stay out of this area.. Find a more progressive town with a far more up to date way of thinking leading & teaching.

    Excellent school. Great teacher selections and academics. Involved administration. No school sports but community has many opportunities. Lost of extracurricular such as Desination Imagination art spelling and drama.

    I have been to this school. There has never a bully that has not been reported. This school has small clubs that keeps kids off drugs.
