i think Bayouwoods elementary school has great teachers. They do an amazing job! My complaint involves the front office staff! They are so rude and disrespectful! They never acknowledge you when you walk in the office. In the medical field we are required to smile and greet patients warmly at 10 feet away. I recently picked up a good gator sign for my child and the staff member in the front office never acknowledged me or the coworker that was with me. Had I not spoke up after five minutes of standing there, she probably would not have said anything at all! VERY RUDE ! I have three children attending this school in pre k, 2nd, and 3rd grade. Straight A and A,B students, one in honor's art. For this reason, I am currently searching for my children a new school to attend. I hope this is changed soon.
