Violetville Elementary/Middle School 1

This school is horrible! DO NOT send your child there if you can help it. The students are a problem in itself, but the teachers lack of discipline makes it worst. My daughter was assaulted by a boy inside of a tiny classroom all while the teacher watched a movie. The students had to stop the boy from attacking my daughter. The teacher never got up from her desk. No authority figure was notified whatsoever. The principal Mrs. RyanHol never contacted me to notify me of the incident. Instead, she let the attacker leave the school grounds along with my child who is also a walker. The assistant principal Mr.Gibbs acted as if her dad and I were getting on his nerves when inquiring about how no teacher found this to be a serious issue. He then proceeded to lead us into a room where, by this time an officer had arrived. Both the principles left the school as if they could care less about the outcome. The school was getting ready to close and they truthfully did not want to be bothered. Furthermore, NO teacher or principle called me to inform me about this incident even though my child's eye was swollen shut! My own child had to find a phone to call me. When the officer went to look for them they had both went home without ever talking to us. Another teacher pulled me aside to tell me that this is the worse school she has ever worked for. PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE DIVERSITY!! Students are out of control and the teachers could care less about their safety, lives, or future. My daughter was withdrawn from that school that very next day. Please, if you love your child DO NOT send them to this school period!

Extremely ineffective! They are there just for a pay check and that's it! This equates especially to both of the principles.

8 graders are doing 6th grade work. The students are not challenging intellectually at all. Again, the teachers could care less about the students success!

This school allows students to taunt and harass other students all while ignoring the issue.

The principles don't care about the students so there is absolutely no way any other person they hire would care about the students.

please read my long review. This school is horrible and extremely dangerous for kids. Do not be fooled by the diversity! The principle and assistant principal could care less about the well being of these kids.

My BTU rep and the custodial staff. They see the truth, but don't say much. It is all a cover up

They could be a lot more effective if the principal would put their foot down and pull the disrupters out of the classroom.

What ever is given is not completed the next day. What is given has to be simple so they try and complete.
