When your main value is to teach respect yet you disrespect students and parents in front of the students, what does this teach our children?

Very curious to know if the main office lady is rude to every one or just me?? I contemplated all summer to switch schools but decided against it only because the convenient distance the school is from our home. My kids are respectful and amazing. They tell me every thing that goes on, especially concerning are the inappropriate conversions the kids and teachers have. I'm not sure if we were just spoiled at their old school (which we couldn't afford any more) or if this is the "norm", but it just feels almost like the staff goes out of their way to talk down to you. I love being involved but as for now it's too unaproachable yet. Thank you for reading. This is only my experience and most of my kiddos do enjoy attending Samish elementary.

They have no money and they let the kids run wild. My daughter has had money for "Frozen Wednesday" stolen from her multiple times.

My daughter went there and she was the new kid. All the kids caed her names and were terrible to her. The staff is mean to the children, and rude to the parents. My daughter got a part in a play they were doing (it shouldn't have been called a play at all) and the teacher kicked her out 3 days before the play and gave someone else the part. The same teacher called my daughter a brat because she didn't want to be a dwarf in a snow white play. She did end up being the narrator but a second grade teacher came up to my 4th grade daughter and told her she didn't do very well. I was there next to my daughter and she's lucky I didn't sock her in the nose. (My daughter did amazing by the way) For the parts the teacher based it on how you look not on how much talent you had. Many times the teacher wouldn't show up for practice. It was really one teacher that ruined two years of my daughters life. The bus drivers are terrible to the students as well. One of my daughters friends was screamed at and told to shut the f*** up. The teachers try as hard as they can but its hard for them because the school has absolutely no money. I would recommend taking the extra time to drive your kids to Mt.Vernon Elementary.

Very dedicated parent group. Great teachers & volunteers. Students are treated with kindness respect. My experiences with my children have all been good. District needs to upgrade the buildings though.

Fantastic school - and fantastic parent group! The other reviewers so obviously have not gotten involved in the school in ANY way. I would take this one over CENTRAL any day.
