  • Harte Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Very disappointed in the Special Education Speech Therapist Brandi at this school and the special aide assistant Rachel. Their demeanor and facial expressions are very confusing to most special needs children who are trying to learn how to trust the teachers working with them and how communicate and build social skills. I have witnessed a very short patient and harsh style of interactions with these precious children. I Hope they find something else that brings them some type of fulfillment and joy. Our children are depending on emotionally responsible, and well trained teachers and therapist to work with them. Just a note if you do not like a helpless defenseless special needs student, the child nor the parent should know this. Please stay professional. The children did not ask to be this way.
