I'm looking to send my children elsewhere due to the lack of teaching and leadership of this school. My children have the desire to learn but, no one seems to care. There is always an issue and never any resolution. My children have poor grades and there seems to be no concern except from myself to better that situation. My children don't have a behavioral problem, they don't get into trouble. What happened to caring about children's education because these schools in Citronelle certainly do not display any of that.

I believe the school does the best with what they have.... additional funding would help this school.

My child attended this school and I cannot think of but a few good things to say about it. The teachers and staff (many of them, not all) are among some of the most unprofessional people I have ever dealt with. I would do anything it took to keep my children out of this school. The 'test scores' at the end of each quarter seem to be the second most important thing. The children are being shortchanged in many ways. Someone of really needs to check out the inner workings of this 'learning institution'. My child is lucky not to be there anymore!

Why are there so many field trips? And why is there so much homework? My Child is only in second grade, and already I am tired, last year they had three field trips before thanks giving, they had a book fair, a science day, some sort of school-in-the-woods day, and sent home at least 2 hours of home work a night. This year is starting out to be no different! Why don't they do what they are supposed to and TEACH my child reading writing and arithmatic; and let me take the kids to the zoo?

This is a good school with some of the lastest technology in the area. However, the staff is more concerned with test scores than teaching.
