I feel strongly that from the teachers to the principal and everyone in between do not care about my concerns for my child. His teacher speaks to me as if I have I have a mental defect I feel she has a personal dislike for my child and it is being displayed in a sneaky manner, he has told me he is ...  Read more

Unfortunately this school has taken a steep decline with the retirement of the former principal. The majority of teachers still offer a great education but the new admin is lacking in many areas. I find a lack of respect when I enter the facility now and any concerns are not really listened to. It ...  Read more

I like John Drugan because it is a secure place, it has coffee with the principal once per month, it has several educational fairs (after school) for our children and high performance in TASK.

john drugan... the name says it all. Its droopy, nasty and by far, the worst school i have ever seen!!!! The principal is too selfish and she never even listened to my concerns about my child's teacher. Now that my child is an 8th grader, I see that the school is too cliquey and the teachers dont even ...  Read more

John Drugan is a very good school. I think they offer state-of-the art technology and my daughter always comes home happy! I feel that my daughter is very safe there since security is strictly enforced. I have great communication with the teacher and with the principal. I feel free to voice my concerns ...  Read more

John Drugan is one of the worst school i have been to work on. It is not that clean, the cafeteria is a mess, and the principal never looks happy.I am very ashamed of this school and think they could do better if a miracle happens.
