Im so disgusted with this school I hate that my child has to attend it.

This school spends too much time on 'don't talk in the halls, the classroom and lunchroom' red card yellow card etc. There is almost no parental involvement and the principal is only concerned with numbers. There should be more family time than homework. My child can color at home. They don't move on with students that can do the work so they hold them back and dumb them down. I realize economics makes a difference. The principal is no exception.

Our kids go to school each day for almost 7 hrs and my child is having homework for an additional 3 to 4 hours on most nights. The homework 'overload' I feel is rediculous, it's making my child lose quality time at night from other family events we could be doing.

My child transferred to this school in the middle of February of 2005. We were greeted at the office by the Principal, Mrs. O'Neal. She took us to his teacher's room and made our son and us feel comfortable from the first day. We have had many many teacher conferences at our request and meetings regarding our son's health needs at school. We as parents are very impressed with the care and dedication to his schooling from his teachers and the principal. His school nurse, Mrs. Sunetta Barrett has many duties but she makes us feel that our son is her top priority by her daily actions. I really feel this school curriculum is gearing my son towards the next level of education. I think that Mrs. O'Neal and the teachers present a positive and safe learning environment and we as parents are quite happy with this school.

Wow, I just found this site. And boy am I going to be using it. I agree with the other postings, however to be honest, they were TOO NICE.. I have been fighting this school, and this principle long enough.. Fighting for my childs right to have a great education and surrounding for success. Yes the principle must go, along with the scheduled ideas of how a child can and will learn. I am bookmarking this site.

I feel that we are so far behind the other schools in our district, based on what other parents say that their child is doing in class. A friendly, welcoming attitude from the principal would be nice, but I haven't seen that since my child has went there. Tenure is a wonderful concept for some teachers, but it can be a downfall for our children. There is so much that parent involvement could provide our children and teachers if only they were utilized. As for the teachers, for the most part, they are great...some have their favorites & the children know it, but most were born to teach!

There needs to be more caring attitude from the principal.Little children should not have to fear a educational provider, they need to have respect for them.Mrs.O'Neal will give out a punishment then the next day decide it was not severe enough. This teaches children you don't have to stick to your word.What also needs to be recognized is, not all children are 'A' students and some children do have learning disabilities so please don't treat them badly because of this.When we get to the point in life we can hurt childrens feelings and speak harshly to them, we need to move on.Parents should feel welcome to attend field trips and visit the school regularly with out fear that the principal will get mad.The marshall county school system needs to seriously consider replacement for this schools leadership before more children are hurt emotionally.
