Kind of a random question, but I was just looking at greatschools.net. When I first came to Fort Wayne, I went to Holland Elementary School. My teacher was good, my brother's was kind of a dud. She didn't do anything when he was getting beat up, and the principal and the assistant didn't care, either. I don't remember the assistant principal, but I saw school reviews from the past when people complained about this particular lady.

When were looking for a house, every realtor my dad met with he complained about Holland and made it known he didn't want to be with a school like that. A lady realtor even said her son went there from K to 5, and had this look on her face like never again. Another incident involved was when my mom was in the waiting room with two women for my brother's speech therapy. This lady was scoffing at Holland claiming they care so much about responsibility or respect. Another lady said she lived next door to two substitute teachers, and they refuse to sub at Holland because the teachers and the students don't care.

I ended up going to Whispering Meadows, and it was a godsend. The academics, parent involvement, the principal, and teachers were mostly good. But...

I looked at the greatschool ratings, and Whispering Meadows had a 6/10 rating, and Holland had a 9/10 rating. What has changed to make Whisperings Meadows and Holland different?
