  • Good all-around school. Some teachers are phenomenal, while others are below average. Unfortunately, the administration does nothing to rectify the issue. My child has had superb teachers, with the exception of one. That bad apple, and the school's refusal to do anything about it, has really left a bad taste in my mouth. Good teachers deserve rewards, bad teachers need retraining or termination. I truly believe this could be a great school if they began addressing the bad apples.

  • My daughter has attended this school since kindergarten. The teachers and staff have always been wonderful. Fun school, many activities and PTA involvement. I highly recommend this school hopefully I can find a middle school with the same values and integriy as Symmes Elementary.
