Shame on Tecumseh Public Schools. Children with any kind of special need will not be educated at Patterson. When it is official the student needs help, they ship them off to another school. They take pride in high "scores," but know they can only achieve these high scores because they get rid of the students that struggle. SHAME ON YOU!

Used to live in a bigger city and was worried about what the school experience would be like in such a small town.. I have been very surprised! Patterson has been a wonderful experience for my children, there is a great community of parents, and lots of support from teachers. In these trying times, when other surrounding larger communites are having to cut music, art, and gym..Patterson and Tecumseh schools are making sure to keep all of the extras and then some.

Some teachers in this school seem to put emphasis on writing children up for every infraction you can think of. Also there are those that have no control over their classroom. Certain teachers I feel should not be teaching, or at least not at the elementary level. They are very impersonal. Extra curriculum activities are lacking and if there are any they are only for a short time. Language is still not taught at the elementary school level, instead it's an after-school 1/2 hour program about once a week for only a few weeks. What are the kids going to learn or remember? I am glad my child only went here for a few years.

Patterson is an amazing school! We are so fortunate to live in this community and attend this building. It offers superb leadership, communication, support, and academics. The staff is exceptional and caring.

We have been extremely happy with all of the teachers we have had while attending Patterson. We have chosen to remove our children from this school due to the lack of support from the principal regarding food allergy procedures and awareness. Unfortunately, he has not been willing to work with us to resolve our issues even though repeated attempts have been made. I would not recommend this school for food allergic children.

Having moved from Ann Arbor, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Tecumseh school system. Teachers are qualified and caring!
