I think that this school needs a big change with administration and teachers. There are only a couple teachers that are there for the students, the rest, including the administration, are there for the paycheck. Granted there are teachers and administration that drive many miles to work here but that does not make them a wonderful leader. Their heart is not here with their students.

I also diagree with some of these comments. For one get the facts straight, these kids do not get any homework!!! They get classwork and if they dont finish it in class then it becomes homework. And about the communication the person wrote about the teacher and parents not the students, so i do agree with this person there is not enough communication between parents and teachers, 'we are suppose to work as a team'. And well as far as the teachers, all I have to say is there is only one or two that actually care about the students, as far as the rest of them I dont know about that one. If these teachers were doing so much to help these kids, why wasnt there any tutoring after or before school? I guess these teachers weren't doing everything they could right?

I do agree that there isn't very many activities for the students I don't agree on the communication and homework part. I know for a fact that teachers are sending homework home for the sole reason being I've seen the teachers hand it out and have helped my sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and newphew with the homework. Also, any communication problems between student and teacher is the problem of that student. Anything not understood is always willing gone over again if need-so-be. The teachers there love the students that they work with and do all that they can to help advance them!

I totally disagree with these comments, we feel that our kids are not getting the education that they need. Maybe sometime in the future this will improve, but for now we're looking into moving them to St. George. There is very little school activity, no homework and comunication between parents and teachers is very minimal.

This school has teachers who work very hard to go the extra mile for their students.

This is a great school with good administration and excellent teachers. Most teachers have to drive 5O miles round trip to teach at this school. Many of which have been with the district over ten years. This shows the commitment to the students. I love this school and the education my children are getting.
