I have 4 children, and when each of them were old enough to got to the junior high, we started homeschool

I belive that the school has no good foundation . It's very roudy and messy.

this school is terrible and so are all of the teachers, they don't teach anything.


Posted February 17, 2009

I don't approve of how some of the staff talk about the children and custodians.It's very unperfessional. I would not call this good team work. They ought to win an award on acting. There needs to be changes.Big changes. And the coaches at Central Elementry and Magnolia Junior High ought to be ashamed of themselves for the way that they treat some of the students. I would not trust my ill child in the coaches care, because, they are very well irresponsible. And I could go on and on,etc.
