  • Waterford and their affiliation with third parties need to be educted on the legal system. Their main concern should be the safety of our children, NOT THEIR IMAGE!!
    I believe the techers are wonderful though! However, the teachers aren't responsible for the "all around" safety of our children.
    After these last 3 months, considering the heartbreak my children will endure, will take my children out of the gardner public school system, as badly as I wanted my kids to graduate from my home school. I need to MAKE SURE safety is #1, not image!

  • This school is absolutely rediculous, they make up new rules every day, that don't even make sence. This school doesn't find it necessary to report important issues to parents that occur during the school day, and there is also inappropriate supervision.
