Almond Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

This is quite a snobbish school for being a public school. Everyone from parents, to teachers, even secretaries act privileged! When our kids first joined the school from another state, we were very disappointed at how insensitive the first grade teacher was towards our 6yo child considering the major displacement our child had just had with the entire relocation. Not only was no effort made to accommodate a mid-year new student, she was even critical of the child! Be careful of this school! Some of the things are just plain discriminative. Indians are taught that 'native Americans' are the real Indians. Christmas, and Christianity is shoved down everyone's throat unmindful of the religious and cultural diversity. Winter break is called "Christmas Break". Public parking spaces are auctioned off to the highest bidder! The list goes on...Over zealous parents add to the problem with their pandering behaviors. Watch out!
