I would not recommend anyone to enrolling their Child into this school! Before moving to this city we seen the rating and review,I seen they where not to good but because of my husband's job we decided to buy and move here hopeing it would not be as bad as it was made out to be ! Well a year later I have finally had enough ! My son who is in 3 rd grade was is victim of horrible bullying ! He was bullied on several occasions most recently he was hit in the face several times by two boys ! School told me it was seen by a teacher and was handled right away , my son told me NO TEACHER was even around . His friend had to run and tell a teacher ! I don't think they follow right disciplinary actions for the kids like they need to ! They just let to much bully kids get away with to much!

st martinville primary school... i realize that teachers are very busy with lesson plans, tests, grading, etc., but i heard from a teacher that they are so busy that homework can not be checked for accuracy. I do not believe that this is true for my child, but maybe for some other student's and classes. My child has been put in a class for one hour a day for remediation in reading and math, which he hates. For months, he has been working on counting 1 to 100. He had to start there and work to a fourth grade level in math and reading. He, in my opinion, needs a teacher, not a computer. He needs to relearn phonics, which we are doing at home, but I don't see it at school. I called the school board and asked if I could sit in his class, to see his attention span and behavior and was told that i could go there at any time. I have tried several times to go to the classroom, but have yet to be let in. Teacher is called and is busy. I don't want him to know that I will be there to observe him. What should I do???

This school, and I use the term "school" very loosely, is a joke. I was appalled to receive a letter home reminding parents of the fighting policies and then to hear my 3rd grader tell me the bus had to pull over so the driver could stop a fist fight. When did elementary school become a hotbed of violence? Perhaps if they would separate their advanced students from the discipline problems, they could focus on the individual children. The test scores and adhering to Common Core seem to be all that matter. My gifted child is being held back and bullied so he can help raise up the very kids who have sucker punched him for getting an A on a test. I am doing everything in my power to get him out of this hell hole.

When I enrolled my child into this school I was happy for a new start only to find out the opposite. Now my child isn't perfect but the way she was trying treated was a headache. She was bullied by 2 teachers and it came to a point where because so much was said about her in front of other students they started bullying her. This was happening to a 2nd grader . No one done anything only one teacher seen and d id her bear to resolve the issue.If she has ANY issues this year I'm going to go to the school board first. I pray nobody's child have to endure what my child dealt with.My kid was being bullied at breakfast nobody did nothing and the fact that those young children have to ride the bus with teenagers ...The things my daughter would come home and tell us what she heard I even had a high-school girl threaten her.It was a headache with these people and I'm not going for it this year AT ALL!

I'm being generous with a two star rating. They need to overhaul their program in this school. They run it like juvenile detention center. They should seperate the good kids from the bad and keep the advanced students together so the school year isn't wasted. Lots of misbehaved kids. They do little to reinforce a child's originality and/or uniqueness in this school. Test scores are all that matter and most staff talk down to the parents.
