Amherst Elementary School Reviews

1 review
While Amherst has some amazing level 4/5 teachers, there is rampant bullying within this school and nothing is done about it. Not only is there student on student bullying; there is teacher on student bullying and intimidation, and teacher on teacher bullying/intimidation. If you talk to administration, they will tell you it is the first they've heard of this problem and your complaints will be swept under the rug. When the next person complains it will be the first time they've heard about it. Not only do they seem to tolerate bullying, some teachers appear to actively encourage it and engage in it. Certain teachers appear to engage in retaliatory behaviors against students when they do not like a specific parent, child, or teacher. Certain teachers yell at the children, call them stupid, call their work crap, throw things and kick objects within the classroom while "pitching a fit"/angry. Amherst does have some amazing teachers, but it also has far too many "stinkers".
