I have 2 children in Poynette schools. I have been very disappointed in the leadership of the teachers and the administrators. This school is not for children but great for adults.

I do not like the grading structure (ABCDF starts in second grade) No comments are given on report cards. Children don't seem to be properly supervised.

We moved to Poynette 2 years ago and have been very happy with the learning process. My child has been excelerating and loves going to school. He can read and write well and has liked all of his teachers. I think so far our experience has been a good one. I hope the years to come will prove the same.

I have two children in Poynette Schools both have ADD/HDAD. They've been in special classes since second grade. Now in junior high/high school they can not read above a fourth/fifth grade level and can not spell worth a darn. The school does not believe in holding children back in the earlier grades such as first, second or third. They wait till the tenth or eleventh grade and then do it. Children drop out of school or have behaviors towards teachers and shipped to behavioral schools. There are some past graduates I know that I consider slow minded that should never have graduated, the school pushed them through. I feel that is what's happening to my children. Yes I am involved and I am at school on a regular basis, but I need my job and can't afford to home school or take Silvan Schools. Grade school is worse than Highschool. Change teachers!

We have a child in the McFarland School District and have weekend placement of 2 children in the Poynette School District. It is our feeling that Poynette has very low achievement standards compared to McFarland. We also recently competed against Poynette in a forensics meet and found that the McFarland group was very excelled compared to Poynette. There was also a huge difference in behavior between the two groups. Some of the Poynette children were very ill-manored. We are very disappointed that 2 of our children do not have the same opportunities as the other. I would not recommend Poynette schools to anyone!
