Please tell me the review by the "gradtuing" 6th grader is joke. Please tell me no 6th grader in this school has such poor grammar and spelling skills. It is just a sick joke, right?

I have had three children attend Donner Springs (one graduated this year). My kids have enjoyed every teacher. I have had no problems with the administration. I read through the other reviews...I don't understand the negativity. You can't label an entire staff 'unqualified' if you've had 1 bad experience.

This school and its administation and Principal are the worst, unconcerned, rude and unqualified teachers I have encountered in Washoe County thus far!
