So glad my child is finally leaving this school. We have had nothing but problems. If your child needs special ed this is not the school for you. I have a younger son who I have fought to have placed in Sycamore which has been wonderful. Hopefully he remains there because Slocum has been a nightmare!

There is a true sense of community and family at Slocum. There is a tremendous amount of parental involvement and pride. The students are challenged and cared for. I love this school.

Excellent principal, great environment! Some of the teachers need a little more motivation and others need experience.

Sandra Rubin is an excellent principal who leads by example. From the teachers who work for her to the activities at the school she believes that if it is not in the best interest of the students then it's not good enough for her school. She instills a sense of pride for the school & provides a safe & caring environment for learning.
