I am enrolled in an Alternative Teacher Certification and came to observe Ms. Rougeau, Kindergarten teacher at Sutton Elementary. Ms. Rougeau reaches out to each type of learner. Every subject that she teaches is reinforced and retaught in a way so that no student is left behind. Every student can learn and truly achieve his or her full potential. Congratulations Ms . Rougeau!

I am so glad my kids no longer go to this school. My son's teacher was out approximately 70% of the time and when I called the office to inquire, they said it was for required state training. I am amazed that my son passed with As and Bs with all the classroom commotion. I have to feel for the kids who might need extra attention because they won't get it. Oh, and if you speak English and not Spanish here, you will be overlooked (they cater to minority and are not open to each and every individual). Boo on them!

It's an excellent school. My son is now in Herod in the vanguard program, and I have to say that Sutton amazed me more with their high quality education than Herod. My son learned how to read and write with Ms. Garcia in PreK. He got accepted into the vanguard program in Herod, and I moved him. I regret it because Sutton has a better kindergarten education than Herod even though is not a vanguard school. Thanks, Ms. Garcia; you're the best.

The quality of education that students receive at Sutton is very good. Students come out of Pre-K and Kinder reading, writing and doing math at a 1st grade level! Students are expected to succeed and they are given the support needed to achieve and meet their goals. Both of my sons have been at Sutton since Pre-K and every year they do better and better.

The quality of this school has consistently deteriorated during the six years of my son's attendance. He was constantly bullied by his classmates in his teacher's presence. When I tried to address this issue with the school administration, the assistant principal called a meeting to discuss my son's behavior. His teacher truly was an overpaid baby-sitter who had neither an interest in teaching nor the ability to do so.
