Not happy with principals and how they handle bullies. It's always who knows who. Parents are not friendly.

this school seems to have a one sided policy, which allows bullies to go without punishment, vitims get central.

I give this school a 5 when i first sent my children to Solomon i was a little scared, not wondering how they will do, or be scared of the people around. But the best thing i ever did was to send them to the best school . That is Solomon elem. My kids are getting the best education and support from the teachers. I couldnt feel more comfortable, and neither can my children. Solomon is like my kids second home, they feel safe and secure.What more can you ask for.Back in the old days the teachers didnt care, but today you have to give a thumbs up for the teachers and the staff at soloman elem. Way to go to a job well done. When my child needed extra help in a subject, they got the proper education they needed. Again, thank you for making my kids feel safe.

Sending our child to Plains Solomon was a very hard decision for us to make and making this decision now we are very happy we did. His teacher is very one on one and caring about her students. He comes home every day saying how wonderful she is. The 'new' principal is also a very nice person seems to care a bit more from what we have heard of others in the past. One thing I miss is the lack of plays (recitals) the children are able to do at this grade (K) wished we can see them perform but they don't. Overall we are very happy with how our child has progressed with is learning skills, I mean he is reading sentences already. That to us is great!

Building/grounds are beautiful, but the people within...! The office staff can be quite rude, the administration has no follow-up and at least two teachers in the upper grades actually BULLY their students. I also found that the administration and teachers 'yes' the parents to death and then do what they want anyway. I also experienced problems with teachers who didn't like the fact that I questioned their discipline methods and they took it out on my child(ren). Parents aren't allowed in the building during school hours and are generally discouraged from involvement. This may be slightly different if you are involved in PTA. It made me feel like they had something to hide. 7 point grading scale is overly ambitious. Teachers make PSSAs the childrens' problem.

The school is bright, cheerful, and the students generally well behaved. The Priciple is very parent-unfriendly. He continually discourages the efforts of individual parents to be involved in their childrens eduacation and activities at school. He will not allow parents to visit classrooms to observe the class. This was always commonplace when I was in school, and the teachers were always able to still teach. He discriminates against parents of modest means by not allowing them to participate in activities that more affluent parents can afford. His attitude is if you can't afford it don't do it. This leads to the children feeling not as good as others and diminishes their self esteam.
