Joe M. Pirtle Elementary School Reviews

Not sure who is saying not to send your child here... my daughter has been there 2 years and we LOVE Pirtle! The principal is incredible and does a wonderful job of running the school. The teachers have been amazing and really help my daughter understand the material. They are very kind to her and I appreciate them all so much. I am really surprised someone is having a bad experience. Everyone there has been so wonderful that I just cannot say enough kind things!
The only thing that kind of bugs me is how the parents drive in the back of the school during drop off and pick up. It actually really bugs me because the parents are not being safe while pick up and drop off are occurring. I do wish the school could do more about that.

I only thought Pirtle was a great school because they are great pretenders. When my husband and I separated, for personal reasons, they kicked my children out of district. Then Temple gave us trouble because I'm NOT in district my husband's district, I'm in district for Pirtle. They have effectively stopped my children from being able to go to school. So I have nothing better to do than let the entire community know that this school seems great but they are bullies, deceivers, and a community of horrible people.
