  • Drummond Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    We used to LOVE Drummond! The parent community and the early childhood teachers are very warm and supportive. When our children were younger and there was a different administrative team, we always felt listened to and cared for. The current principal is extremely ineffective and no one there seems to know what is going on or how to resolve a problem. In addition, the 7th-8th grade math and science teacher yells at and berates students in front of the class, which has been very upsetting to my child. He is a bully, and he assigns grades depending on how much he likes your child. It's no wonder that so many families transfer their children out of Drummond before 7th grade. I truly regret keeping my child there for 7th and 8th grade.
