The principal and teachers are very dishonest and rude. They take the kids privilege away for learning because of behavior problems. The secretary looks at you with a don't want be bother face. Respect is key for success

My school is the best one in the GPS district. The principal Mrs. Reeves, is a outstanding lady who really seems to care about the children. The teachers are down to earth and encourage, promote and model learning for all childrens.

I love Em Boyd School. When I was a child I attended Boyd and now my child attends. Academically the school is wonderful. The principal, Mrs. Pree is great with the students. To me, it is a safe school....I don't have to worry about my child while she is there. I love the school.

I think Em Boyd School has a very safe and orderly environment for the students. The teachers encourage, promote, and model learning for all students. They work on weekends and stay during the week from 7:15am until 6:00 and 8:00pm. They appear to be dedicated to their jobs and goes beyond the call of duty.
