Polenta Elementary 2

Posted December 15, 2015

Our daughter has attended since kindergarten and honestly that was the only decent year. Communication from teachers and principles are nonexistent and if you do get to talk to 2 or more, you'll get 2 different answers. Car pool is never on time. School functions are preceded by PTA meetings. Websites they use will not work with tablets. Johnston County School system has become a joke.
