John M. Sexton Elementary School Reviews

Dedicated staff

By a Parent on

What an amazing school! I wish I had enrolled my kids sooner, as they are thriving under the care of wonderful teachers. Great job Sexton and I applaud your unbelievable teachers.  

By a Parent on

The staff in the front office John M. Sexton Elementary is a bunch of rude people. They act condescending and just generally act like they could care less  as if you are bothering them.  They're there to just get a paycheck. As, for the teachers the one my children  has the misfortune to have to deal with have all acted as if they don't have time to teach them and are extremely nit picky. Both my kids have special needs and I get the impression that they shun my kids because of it. I also get empty promises from the Principal. I had a conference with her 3 weeks about one of my kids teachers, after being told that she would get back to me I have not heard anything.

We Love Sexton Elementary

By , a Parent on

My daughter loves this school. She feels safe and loves all of the teachers and employees as well as volunteers that work there. I am disappointed that our daughter has to switch to Woodlawn Elementary. Other than that, we think Sexton is a great school.

Academic Excellence at Sexton

By , a Parent on

I love sexton. My children have been there since kindergarten and all of the staff has helped my kids achieve academic excellence!

By a Parent on

The worst school I have ever seen. My daughter's teacher was great but for the rest of the staff for the most part were rude and were there to pick up a paycheck only.
