My daughter is in the gifted program at Bob Mathis. I think we as parents are always searching for what's best for our children, its only natural; however, many times we don't realize we may already have it. Learning cannot take place where there is chaos. The principal does require order which can be uncomfortable if parents and students are used to having free reign to do as they please. I would rather they separate kids who score significantly higher than the rest on the ITBS as I've noticed a tremendous difference in behavior of Magnet students at Wadsworth. It's not Wadsworth Magnet that makes the kids great. The Magnet qualified children make the school great. The school does maintain that greatness which many schools have a difficult time doing when the children are in classes where behavior problems are an inhibition to learning.

Overall I Believe Bob Mathis is a good school and 1 of the best elementary schools in the area. It's a very clean school and the students seemed be well behaved. The teachers and staff are also very professional. The class sizes are smaller than norm and I always see the principal greeting the parents and ensuring the students are doing what they are supposed do. The teachers are very helpful and show concerns for the students. I can honestly attest to this as I am a parent of a kindergartner who is very involved in my child's education. However, there is always room for improvement. I wish they offered more extra curriculum activities and an after school program. Each person experience can be different. After reading the previous parent comment, I was a little hesitant about this school overall. But, my experience with the school and principal has been the totally opposite. I believe that reviews from parents are very helpful and provides a lot of feedback. But at the end of day, sometimes you have to experience things for yourself. Maybe if there were consistent negative reviews about a particular school, then one should become a little concerned.

ATTN PLEASE THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE. DR Blaylock doesn't listen and barely speaks to the kids or parents. She's constantly yelling at the kids with her walkie talkie in hand. The teachers never comb there hair and constantly yell at the children. My son was in Ms Lofton class and had to be changed because or her poor judgement and constant yelling. She even made teacher of the year which is sicking. Surely there could have been someone else to receive this award. The KG picnic was a Horrible rude teachers talking to parents and children with NO RESPECT unappreciative and unorganized mess. Field Day was terrible holes in the potato sack bags, no water snacks for the kids, the field was not cut. Parents had to leave to go buy water for the kids. Dr Blaylock didn't even come out to Say Hello or Good Luck have a great summer nothing. In fact I didn't see her at ALL. He will not attend this school next year. This should be a Zero Rate it needs to be closed.

Attn Please: This school is the worst school known to mankind! The principal's name is Dr. Willa B. Blaylock and she has no respect for the teachers/ staff or parents. She tries to talk to you like she's above all and she really doesn't even like children at all. My son went here 2011-12 he was in grade K. His teacher was horrible! Her name was Ms. Lofton. Ms. Lofton is an sickly older lady whos taught for over 30years and who has constantly told me she can't wait to retire, so with that being said she had no patience with the kids, not "bubbly" or exciting personality that I think you need to teach kindergarten. She constantly talked to me about her verbal fights with the principle and her being not satisfied with her pay. Bob Mathis has a beautiful playground but the kids never see it because Blaylock has cut out all outdoor activity.. The school has a behavior problem which would be resolved by college interns coming in to help while being a teacher aid, well Blaylock has refused to let any outsiders in the school especially college interns who are willing to work for free to earn credit! I attended the school when I was a little girl it has changed!
