Take 2 good grade students with no issues send them to this school and you will have to deal with students that now Cut themselves (self Mutilation) and suicide. Never a issue before this school. Great group of kids here.
We had just moved here from Prescott and I was appalled by the bullying, teasing, and meanness of the children that go to this school. My daughter is a above average student . After going here for just a short while she started to "fail" because she had already done most of what they where teaching earlier in the school year in Prescott. She never felt so degraded in her life. I will never send another child to this school. The only thing I can say positive about this place is the office staff was accommodating for dealing with the death of my mom.
Athletics is the ONLY thing this school has going for them. The teacher turnover ratio is pretty high. I have had three children now go through White Cliffs and only a couple of teachers remain the same. You would think that constantly replacing the staff would eventually improve instruction, but it seems that this school in particular only cares about its ATI test scores and is not truly interested in actually teaching. Your best bet is its rival school KMS where teachers still teach, or KAOL if you can get your kid in. The Academy apparently has a long waiting list.
Best sports program in town. Test scores are low, but the new admin this year has started things off with fixing the problems noted in other reviews. Cambride program has great potential. Not regretting my decision to pull my student from the academy and never will!
White Cliffs is an excellent Middle School with tons of fantastic teachers. They are the best teachers I've had, the office staff more specifically "Jennifer" have been a bit rude at times. They have just started a very good program called "Cambridge" which is run by Cambridge University in England. It is like a mini school within a school. The students are very nice and welcoming, there are always those couple trouble makers but they are taken care of quickly.
I hate this school! it is a horrible school. the students cuss consently, they talk about gross, perverted things and they are mean. Some security guards are NOT nice, and the pre-algebra and algebra teacher is very mean, and cannot teach! Its like instant depression when i enter this school! like i said I HATE IT!!
