I attended this school when I was a small child and this is when I developed tourettes syndrome. The teachers in this school were emotionally cruel to me as were the other students that would bully me everyday solely because of my uncontrollable tics! The teachers were very unsupportive would only discourage me if I had a "tic outburst" and did nothing to help me! If you have a child with special needs or a child that needs extra help this school is NOT for her/him!
I thought the principal and the teachers at this school were terrible there were maybe a handful of decent teachers...my son had a terrible time in first and third grade due to emotionally screwed up teachers...enough said.
I feel like everyone I have met in this school cares about my child. My son and my daughter love their school. The building looks old but its clean. I hope the rest of the district is like this school.
Verne Critz Elementary is a school my child enjoys. The teachers are fantastic. The building is clean but does need updating.
