8 Parent Reviews for Paint Branch Elementary School

Most teachers at this school are entry-level teachers (lack of teaching experience). Class rooms are getiing crowded. My child's teacher does not care much about teaching her students. She is lazy and absent many times. This school used to be OK but not anymore.
