I have a daughter that is in the fifth grade and my son is in the third grade. Both my children have been bullied for the last couple months and the school Principal says it's kids being kids, that they don't consider my children being bullied. In this last two weeks, my son has been in three fights with the same children that has been bullying him. It came to the point that my husband had to threaten the school Principal with getting the school board involved. My son was just telling me last week that his teacher told her class that they are the most disrespectful, worst children she has ever saw. That she doesn't know why she keeps coming back to work. The school Principal makes announcements on the schools intercom about bullying and how it's not tolerated, yet they pay no attention to the children that are being bullied and pay no attention to the children's comments in the bully box. I have to fight with both my children every morning about going to school. So because of this and the lack of supervision the school pays to the children, we are now considering home schooling both our children. We can't afford to sell our house or move right at this time. So for any of you parents that are considering sending your child or children to this school, DON'T. One last thing that bothers me about this school is they don't give the children spelling words. Their reasoning behind this is because computers have auto correct, really people?

This school is not suitable for any child to attend. The teachers do not care and have a low tolerance for children. The principal does the least work to get by. We sold our house to move to a better district just to take my son out of this school. My sons 2nd grade teacher just stopped coming to work and left the class with substitutes for the rest of the year and that was in September. We moved from Overland Park to Kansas City for my husband's job. My son was doing the same work in the 3rd grade at welborn that he did in the 1st grade at Comanche. Please don't send your kids to this school, you'll be doing them a disservice.

So far the teachers are good but the overall school is horrible they do not allow children to be children and their rules are a little outrageous and the supervision of the student are poor.
