i went to this school (2008-2010) and it was one of the worst experiences in my life! I was bullied to no end to the point were in 8th grade I was scared to go to school ,hated myself,hated my life,and didn't wanna go to that school anymore and wanted to transfer to terra cotta even though there was only 3 months of school left. I was constantly being called names got a pen and pencil sharpener thrown at my head and both times I got suspended. apparently you can throw things at peoples heads but got forbid you lay a hand on them! all the bully got was a slap on the wrist and I got suspended!

This school is a joke. A good school has a good dedicated administration who does not tolerate bullying by students or facilty. They would resolve the sisutation by disciplining the "bully". But instead the one who gets bullied is the one who gets disciplined and the "bully" is not disciplined. In my oponion this school needs a good house cleaning take out those who are only their for a paycheck, and bring in ones who care. Then the facilty and administration who care get the credit they deserve for their work when the rating of school actually goes up.

All I can say is I'm sad that I wasted two years of my kids lives at this school! Look around! Much better schools just up the road. They need a huge make over here and yes there are a few good teachers here..but that is it. They need to clean house starting from the top!

So, today is the first day at a new school, in a new state and I have to tell you that I am only giving it a 2 star because I am so frustrated with them. Other people tell me that it's California, blah blah blah. My son is on his 5th school in 5 years in 5 different states and this was the hardest school to get him registered in. You had better have every last piece of paper you ever thought that you may need one day and not count on any other school to get it for you. Finally today (school started yesterday) I got the magical 30 day waiver to get the last school to actually get off of their butts and fax over the necessary paperwork. I flat out told the woman in the office that a whole lotta drama could have been avoided if they simply let me sign that one paper last week! Updates to come. Apparently his teacher of a class of 34 (!) is really good....

The school has a great office staff, principal, and teaching staff! The special ED class is wonderful and the teacher Miss McClain is amazing!

Despite all the terrible comments i heard about this school, i still chose to send my son there and after almost 3 years he loves it. Although i admit that having a good teacher is a plus, the way our kids choose to behave is what makes the difference. My son has been in other schools and his performance level has not been affected by being at this school.

I was hired at this school recently and have heard negative feelings toward it. Now working here for a few months I cannot believe how different it is. I have my son at a private kinder. Needing a new school for him to go into first, I am strongly considering this school! It has great leadership, who are visible on campus at all times of the day. Also great teachers working compassionitely towards common goals. Families will be lucky to have their student here

I'm an original parent from Butterfield before the school closed down and we moved over to Lakeland Village School. I admit the first year was a little rough for all of us. (parents, teachers, office staff) I remember the second week of school (2010) I came in the office with my kids to volunteer and the office staff had the "deer-in-headlights look", since they didn't get that much parent help before the merger. (I assume) So I couldn't blame her for that look. I did witness some issues that year in the beginning where they would treat an K - 1st grader like a middle school kid, when they did something wrong, but like the previous issue, it was a new experience for everyone. I admit the first year I was going to transfer my kids to another school, but after we got all the kinks out, it has been great here for them. All the office staff, teachers, principle, vice principle, playground aids are friendly. When I volunteer most of the K-5 kids always come up to me to say hi or to give me a hug. It feels great to be able to help in my kids classes.

I couldn't disagree more with the writer below. I am an original parent from Lakeland Village Middle School who was very active both before and after the merge. While of course the situation was not of anyone's choosing, and the beginning was a little rough, the school (both teachers, administration and students) came together to make last year a very successful school year. While I personally have not agreed with every choice that was made, I respect the effort and thought that was put in by the administration. They are quick to respond to questions and concerns, and are genuinely interested in parental involvement. If you didn't like the school environment, you should get involved and help to facilitate change. Volunteers are desperately needed and always welcomed. They are willing to work around work schedules and child care needs. Your child's school environment is partially your responsibility. Be part of the process. Get to know the teachers and the administrators and exert some effort on your child's behalf. They will remember your participation forever.

My son went to this school because Butterfield Elementary shut down. We were eagerly looking forward to the K-8 experience. Unfortunatley we were let down tremendously. Most of the teachers are great, mainly because they were from Butterfield. The principal and assistant principal were not willing to work with the parent nor the student. Without good leaders it is not a good environment.
