This school was wonderful before the old principal moved up to the assistant super attendant . The new principal "Karen Feeny " is absolutely horrible first of all she's was a 1st grade teacher before she moved up to principal . And I don't think she should have ever been assigned to the job . A kid told on another kid for asking if he could fly and Karen yelled at the kid. This is a true story told by one of the students. She ruins activities and makes this school miserable.

This school may appear wonderful from outside but this school community has a very long and disturbing history of bullying and exclusion. There are teachers who have humiliated students for many years and the issue has never been addressed. This is not a "new" community behavior. Family members who complain will be "labeled" as trouble. The administrations inability to correct these issues is longstanding, parents are only "heard" if they are considered one of Readings "first" family's.

This school is second to none! Every single teacher is fantastic and ALWAYS acts with the students' best interests in mind. The principal is supportive and creates a warm educational environment. The building itself could use updating.

I feel this school needs to improve how they deal with 'social' bullying. Bullying comes in many different forms and the children need to be taught empathy. I think the principal and all the teachers should take this issue very seriously!
