Deerfield Elementary School Reviews
Deerfield is a beautiful school with so much potential. The problem is the staff. More than half do not want to teach there, or work with "those type of children". They are mostly there for a check. If there were teachers and staff who believed in the students, encouraged them, and nurtured their learning on a daily basis, it would be much better. But they say the staff is as good as the leader, and the principal leaves much to be desired. Good School, Great kids, horrible staff.
I think it's tragic that bullies have free reign outside the school in the morning before the doors open due to complete lack of supervision. Teachers and staff walk right by, eyes and ears averting the physical and verbal abuse. And by verbal abuse I'm not talking about name calling, but malicious assaults. I will be contacting authorities later today. This will include the police and the board of education. This is an abomination!
