To "a parent" posted January 22, 2015. This school is rated "D" for a reason, but I'm the idiot. My child is an A/B honor roll student. The teachers here were REQUIRED to attend a positive attitude class. Guess I'm not the only one who notice their bad attitude. Let me guess, you are a teacher at this school! Not a surprise!

My kid loves this school. She has improved greatly since she began here. To the parent that posted on Nov. 22nd, if you were experiencing problems 3 years in a row with different teachers/staff, then you might want to look at yourself. You seem to be the common denominator. If I were in your shoes, I would feel like an incompetent parent for not taking my child elsewhere or possibly seeing that I am the problem. Your last sentence states, my child will NOT be subjected to these people any longer than necessary to get her transferred. On what planet does it take close to 3 years to transfer schools? Some people are not happy unless they have something to complain about.

This school has a wonderful, family like feeling that I value so much as a parent. My child's teachers have been wonderful and it is obvious how much they love their students. The staff and teachers have always been warm and friendly toward my family and I appreciate their honesty.

The worst. This after 2 1/2 years of my child attending. Not enough room here to tell you how negative this teaching staff is or why I feel they deserve the D rating they were downgraded to this year. Negative teachers who shouldn't be allowed to teach. I was just told by a staff member that the entire staff has been required to take a course in positive thinking and attitude. Will not even begin to fix what is wrong at this school. The principle runs this asylum and I can not comprehend how she still has a job! Let's just say that my child will NOT be subjected to these people any longer than necessary to get her transferred.

Great little school! Both my kids attend Bagdad Elem and they love it. My son has ADHD and the teachers and staff were great about getting my son the help that he needed to achieve his academic goals. So glad that my kids go here and they get the one on one attention and respect of their teachers.

We just moved to Bagdad in January from San Antonio Texas and my son had trouble adjusting to his new school at first. As soon as his teachers recognized he was having trouble they informed me and did everything they could to help him. Now he is doing great! I'm very pleased with this school and its staff.

I LOVE THIS SCHOOL AND IT'S STAFF! My daughter attended kindergarten here this year and thrived! A huge thanks to Mrs. Gooch and her fantastic staff for turning this school around! Test scores have improved tremendously and the teachers are committed to the children's learning! Thank you for an AWESOME year!!

This school has some questionable teachers. It received failing grades both years my daughter went there. Education at this level is priceless, and I wish I had paid for her to go to private school, or at least sent her to another school that was not failing. The superintendant needs to seriously evaluate this schools leadership and fix it.

This is a very small school and has recently received yet another failing grade. My daughter attended Kindergarten here with an excellent teacher; I cannot say the same for the following year. Her First grade teacher was a complete nightmare and had no business teaching young children. We even had parent/teacher/principal conferences to try and work with them. The only way to get out of this school is to send/bus your child to a school 20 plus miles away since the closest school to it also received a failing grade. They also give you a deadline prior to the school starting for you to decide if you would like to transfer your child. There are a few good teachers at this school but I unfortunately can not recommend this school and regret trying to work with them.

I agree that that the administration and teachers are very caring and very nice. My child has enjoyed his time in this school very much. However, I felt as a parent that I often did not know what was going on in the school, and felt like teacher/parent communication was poor. I belong to a large playdate group and felt that most of my friends had interesting and fun stories to share about what there kids were doing in school. Bagdad did not offer as much creative and fun learning techniques as some of the other elementary schools.

The teachers are very caring and they will help when a child is in need. They take the time to make sure each child knows what they are doing.

I am very pleased with the school. It is a small school which allows for more one on one. I am very active at my childs school so I get to see a lot of the inside activity that is going on. The teachers and staff work very hard. My daughter whi is in the 2nd grade loves the school and the teachers and staff. A very at home feeling.

Since Bagdad has recently changed administrative staff, the school's atmosphere has improved tremendously! Mr. Brewton and Mrs. Gooch are a refreshing addition to our child's educational experience. I love the fact that my child's teacher has excellent parent/teacher communication through weekly newsletters and her webpage. Every time I visit my son's classroom, the children are engaged in learning activities. I feel very safe leaving my son in the care of Bagdad Elementary's school staff.

The school size is great . The office staff has always been helpful. My only problem is my child's teacher seems to forget she is there. I know some of the classes are crowded but she deserves the same amount of attention as all the other students even though she is behind in some of her learning.

The teachers are Fantastic and dedicated to student achievement! The art and music program are wonderful! Our school made AYP for the year 04-05- which means EVERY child made a years growth- even those with learning disabilities! And whoever said that this school is behind is not aware of all of the obstacles they had to overcome this year. It is a small school that is family oriented, safe and NOT behind the times. I would recommend this school to anyone!

This school seems a little behind the times as far as education level goes. There was a huge lack of parent involvement (at least in my childs class) as well as a lack of supervision.

I absolutely love Bagdad Elementary. I have two students attending and both have learned so much, but more importantly to love learning. The communication between teachers and parents is excellent. The art and music programs are exemplary. The majority of the staff are compassionate and caring...there are problems with the lunchroom monitors, but what a tough job, and the office staff can be a bit rough at times. The technology is above excellent and my children have access to all sorts of learning enhancements. My neighbors have a 4th grade child with learning disabilities and they have been very pleased with the atmosphere and modifications that have been made for him. One major disappointment would be the number of students in kindergarten classes. Too many! Overall, a small school in size, a family atmosphere. I would not hesitate to reccomend this school to anyone.
