This school district, every school in it, is an absolute nightmare. Unfortunately I have no choice in schooling for my daughter. From the age of 6 my daughter has been bullied, by the staff. In Kindergarten she was forced off the bus at the wrong stop 18 times. One time, the sitter called and said that she was not on the bus. It took 22 minutes for the school to find her, she was 6. When they found her, took her to the correct bus stop and dropped her off they called me (her mother) and told me that they dropped her off with her mother and they wanted to let me know. After being bullied by 2 different teachers in her school by 2nd grade, we switched schools within the district. Things didn't get better. She was sent home with no shoes one time. Her shoes were stolen, she reported it, the office told her to go home. She was a walker, and had to walk 1/2 mile home with no shoes in 4th grade. The school never called me.By middle school she was having sexual rumors spread by a student. School didn't do anything except to tell me that 'students just do things like this to get attention. If we leave it alone they will stop picking on her'. In 9th grade, during a parent teach conference I was told by a teacher that she was doing great in class. Homework all turned in on time, she seemed to be getting all the concepts, "One of his best students". Since he would not use the online grade book required by all the teachers I couldn't know any different, until I got her report card 3 weeks later. She had a 19% and it was noted that she had not turned in any homework. After trying to contact this teacher 4 times I finally got a call back, at which he told me he didn't know what I was talking about that he doesn't recall me even showing up to parent teacher conferences. This district bends over backwards to make every moment spent here an absolute nightmare. If you have any way what-so-ever do not let your children walk through their doors. You will regret every minute.

Saint Mary School is wonderful. The school is filled with loving children, parents, faculty, and staff. We are blessed to have Miss Walton as our Principal and grateful for her leadership!
This school is horrible..... No one cares... About anything! And all the teachers do is complain
I have had nothing but problems out of this school since it started this year. Trying to punish my son for something he clearly was not guilty of. Some of the teachers are so rude that when you try to talk to them the don't want to listen to you they are to busy listening to themselves. If they don't want to give you a chance to talk how can you believe they are listening to the students? The administration won't do anything to help you find a solution to your problems.
its a great school! my daughter loves it there! she has learned so much!
My son's school (Columbus Bilingual Academy) started Aug. 14th and had to push the date back to the 27th due to transportation problems. It is now a month later and my son still has no bus service, every time I call they say they haven't established a route for him or that if they put him on a bus it messes with everyone Else's service, oh not to mention they said their is nothing they can do if i applied after June 2012 well I applied April 2012 and still they cant do nothing...Columbus Public Transportation office stinks...I know its not the bus drivers fault because my mom is a bus driver for another district...its Debbie Weber who needs to get it together...

I graduated from here, but it ain't like it used to be...
