If I could give them a grade of 0 I would, but they lucked up on a 1! This is the absolute worst schoolI have ever encountered. Unmotivated, lazy, direspectful teachers and staff. They know nothing about district rules and regulations and chalk their lack of competency up to no funding and the childrens fault. The majority of staff doesnt even like kids! There are no programs. The office staff are all rude and the principals allow it and are the same. They hate parents who are involved with their children and target them. The VP dances inappropriately and sings Lil Wayne and Drake music and flirts with male staff while the chidren are in class being mistreated. THIS SCHOOL SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN FOR ITS BEHAVIOR AND MEDIOCRETY!

Absolutely mediocre school. No GT program kids are force to stay behind with the rest of the class, stressful enviroment, horrible office staff, teachers always in a bad mood and the teaching isso behind. The kids NEVER get recess, Music teacher is the most horrible person, all the kids we know hate music class and most of them are scared of the P.E coach. Lots of racism, they also play competely unapropiate music in GYM and little girls are encourage to dance unapropiately. I had to move my kids and ooooohhh what a diference, now they have awesome grades, they learn something new and good everyday, teachers are nice and you can tell they love to teach. David K sellars should be carefully watch, kids go lots of potencial can be ruined there for life, is a shame.

Due to lack of parent/teacher communication there is very little parent involvement. When office staff were asked questions no one had answers.

My son attends David K Sellars and has been for the past 4 years. I have found that their academic programs are very helpful to the students and also to the parents. They have programs that involve the parents and children so that the parents not only work with them at home, but also in a school environment. The parent involvement at this school is exceptional and that is owed all to the Principal Mrs. Starr-Whitaker, and the exceptional staff at David K. Sellars. Keep Up the Good work.
