I take STRONG exception to one of your ratings. The BEEF is that we a have principal who cares more about her career than she does the students or the parents. And your HARD LINE about discipline is a joke. Why would a principal need to take a 'hard line' in such an affluent community like Collierville. This principal doesn't even think we have bullies. The administration talks outwardly and openly about the parents they dislike and so does the PTA Board. It's an environment I do not intend on keeping my child in for much longer. I'm just thankful that the word is getting out what a farce our school and its administration has become.

The principal does not return parent phone calls. She has changed arrival and dismissal so her parking lot is safer but the side streets are an accident waiting to happen.

This year our kids have to sit in assigned seating at lunch, punishing them for bad behavior before it happens, and they have organzied recess for so called 'safety measures. It is more and more becoming a military type atmosphere and I think the Principal and her adminstration just stinks. It makes me so say that I send my children there everyday.

I am very disappointed in the direction that our school is going. There is poor communication from our principal to our parents. The children have very littlt time in their day for unstructured play (15 minutes of recess and this is sometimes structured). Now are students are being assigned seats in the lunch room also. As an adult, seven hours is a long time without some unstructured time to unwind. Parents concerns are not listened to or made to feel valid and there seems no where to turn for help. I have always believed in the public school system but as of late have given careful consideration to private schooling or homeschooling. It's very sad the way we are made to feel.

This principal comes across cold to parents and students. She does not interact well with the parents or students. The school is pretty well with the teachers that have decided to stay but the administration really stinks!

I have been so disappointed with the new Administration the past two years. This principal runs the school like a military and does not care about the parent and their opinion. I'm curious, why do we pay taxes and have to put up with this? We are having a huge turnover in our teachers and I think this speaks for itself.

The current principal does not support her teachers, staff, parents or students. The friendly atmosphere that was there before she came,is no longer. Sad...just sad.
