This is our second year at Patrick. The principle Mrs. Scott and assistant principle Mrs. Clark are warm and Loving. Both years we have been blessed with the best teachers. Mrs. Jenkins and Mrs. Sikes. All of the teachers continue to do a great job. The staff wants to see the children be successful . This shows in their actions and dedication. There are many faces and friends that we see at Patrick for two years now that give our family a great feeling about the community and school. Every time I visit I am so grateful for my children to have the opportunity to attend here. This school also offers a great gifted program if your child is able to qualify which is integrated into all of their subjects depending on their placement and capabilities.

My children and I love our school! I have a rising 5th grader, 2nd grader and K. The teachers and administration are committed to the children and love what they do! We have been very happy with every teacher that we have had. In my experience, if there is ever an issue the principal addresses it right away. She is dedicated to the school and her staff but most of all the students.

Pro- Nice, dedicated principal, very hands-on. Excellent facilities. Numerous programs. Cons- Teachers have limited time to teach. Children are forced to learn on their own at home. Student-Teacher ratio could improve. But funding is an issue.

This school is very child oriented. They have embraced my 3 children and developed a love of learning with them. The school offers lots of extra clubs for 4th and 5th grade students. The principal enjoys her job.

This is our second year at this school. My son is very bored with most subjects, indicating that the material is not very challenging. There needs to be more challenging course-work for the more advanced children.

Overall we found this to be a very good School, but it lacks severely in the special education department. This School does a great job with regular mainstreamed students but lacks the staff and experience required to attend to special needs students.
