No one should judge a school by one incident. You need all the facts before you post negative reviews. Alcott has led the way in student, parent an community involvement.

Wouldn't want my child at this school. So tacky to make a child eat food that was left in a trash. Could have made this a teachable moment. Instead she used bullying tactics. Pathetic! I'm glad my child is not in your school system. Feel sorry for those children and for that boy. We tell our children ...  Read more

Most of the teachers are average. There are a few that are very caring. Principal is very busy and interested in conversation when you sit in front of her but forgets to follow up on her promises. School has gone down hill since the late 90's.
