Truman Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

The principal is not in compliance with the needs of special education students. She is not even willing to get to know the student. She is not communicative either. She suspended my grandson over 7 times due to ADHD issues. She was unwilling to work out any other forms of discipline other than suspension. When asked if she understood that there are certain procedures with IEP students, she claimed that I was wrong and that she didn't care what I had to say. She was unwilling to even communicate regarding any special needs. I finally had to remove my grandson from the school. I am in the process of writing letters and contacting newspapers. My grandson is 7 years old. She was a very cold and uncompationate woman. People in the educational system need to be made aware of mental health issues. These students are being lost and forgotten. It stems from uneducated people like this one who believe that it doesn't affect them first hand, when in truth it does. I will not stop until this woman is held accountable for her own behavior and how it affects families.

Children are naturally more creative as they explore the world them. However I feel like they're creativity is butchered until they're teen years where they start to explore who they are which is bad for they're development. For a school who's motto is "Future's begin here" I think thy could do a much better job at preparing these young children for the big world.

Truman elementary is by far the worst else marry school I have ever encountered in my life there is a woman who works in the office who is very nasty and rude we just moved here and they refused to let me walk my 5 year old daughter into school and the first day every though she had no idea where she was going or who anyone was they had a big police officer at the door not allowing any parent past the door like it was a correctional facility so basically I had to let my 5 year old figure it out I was absolutely furious the principal has yet to return a call after weeks of messages I've left her regarding our situation and yesterday was the topping on the cake when my 4 year old who's in pre-k didn't get home until 5:30pm her drop off time was 3:40 so I'm so lost as to why it would ever take so long it could circle Lackawanna 10 times in that time and so when I called the rude woman in the office told me to contact the bus company as if my 4 year old was absolutely no concern I was seconds from calling the police I am furious absolutely disgusted I highly advise anybody to second think this school it is no place for small children they aren't friendly or caring!!!

Most teachers are excellent but there are a few who should no longer be teaching. Positive experiences with the principal as well as other staff members. Security is a bit lacking overall.

I am actually shocked at the bad reviews of Truman Elementary recently. It makes me think perhaps the same disgruntled parent is posting all of them. My oldest daughter went to Truman and we were very happy with the school. Now my youngest is in her first year there and we continue to be very happy with the school. The teachers are great and really care about helping the children succeed. Often times, parents who are not involved enough with their children's academic success will criticize the school or teachers when their child has an academic or disciplinary problem. Those parents need to stop blaming the school and teachers and start being better parents. 90% of problems in school have a root in the home.
