R. D. White Elementary School Reviews
The demographics of Glendale is predominantly Armenian and they make it known. It’s sad to say, but there is a lot of racism and bullying that goes on at this school.

One thing I wish would change was the recess time. Rather than having some teacher's aids standing there and not paying attention to the kids, I wish they would have games for them and assigned teachers /(helpers).

The playground is big enough to set up so many different types of games and the kids can sign up each week and it will not be confusing or owerwhelming for teachers to deal with so many students at once. This way everyone will have a chance to play one or two different types of games. (Basketball, baseball, jump-rops, hoola hoops, dodge ball, and son on...
