I wouldn't even know where to start. There are so many problems with this school. Lack of resources, lack of a good principal, moody teachers, and yes, that very abrasive British woman.

WOW! Seems like same old problems there. My son graduated a couple years back and I was thinking about my daughter going, but the same problems are allowed to continue with the bossy British woman who thinks she runs the school. It was there then and I can't believe it is still happening now. This ...  Read more

As a previous poster mentioned there are problems within the parent group leadership. Thats an easy problem to fix though so it doesnt make it a bad school. This school has tried hard and until this past year it was doing pretty well. Hopefully we will be able to fix or remove the problems this year, ...  Read more

I'd love to give this a good review because I have lived in this neighborhood my whole life and my husband and me both went to this school. So much has changed. The parent group leader does turn people off, but who cares? An adult should be able to ignore someone with a difficult personality. The real ...  Read more

I can't imagine where all this is coming from. The booster club leader does EVERYTHING at that school. She has a few other moms who help out a little, but she is down there doing most of it. She is the most dedicated volunteer I have ever seen. She really does run the school, and they are all lucky to ...  Read more

We have a very dedicated staff and our parent group is led by a vibrant community activist, and volunteer! We have struggled with the problems of finding a new principal, and she has been a constant source of comfort and reassurance through that process. We are back on track now, and we invite you all ...  Read more

This school is a mixture of good and bad. They have a uniform policy which is good but they don't enforce their policy which is bad. They have fairly good teachers there, but they have had three principals in less than a year. There is an active parent teacher organization, but they are clickish and ...  Read more

I was so sad to see the new Principal Mr. Burge leave. He was a caring and compassionate person who always put the students first. It was nice to see a strong principal who wasn't bullied by a few parents who think they run the school. I wish him the best, but sad for the school.

Atwater elementary, I am shocked that a teacher is still there, 3rd grade, every year picks on a few kids to bully, and makes their lives miserable, everyone knows it. You're right about elitism, it's so sad.
