I, in my words, hate this school. The principal sweeps stuff under the rug and does nothing, if he has dirt on you, forget about anything. He holds a grudge against you. Which is what happened to me. The staff is scary, and the counselor there made a rude remark to my mom on the phone. If there is any advice to give to kids going to middle school... TRY TO NOT GET INTO THIS ONE. Believe me.

This is by far the best public school in this area. The staff has been courteous and proffesional and the entire environment has been almost a relief from the chaos found at other schools.From the efficient way that the morning/afternoon traffic flow (actually done right) to the behavior of the students. Great bunch of kids.Rarely does someone 'act out' .And for the first time ,teachers who actually care about the students.They have actual conversations /discusions and kids opinions are listened to.When the principal actully takes your call and takes time to efficiantly attend to a concern it is greatly appreciated. Oh, did I say we like it there?

Last year, I went to school there and I thought it was a great school. I really felt like I was getting a good education and all my teachers were really helpful and taught really good.

The schools answer to behavior isn't counseling or help, it's suspensions. The school is poorly run, lacks real leadership and understanding of those student they are there to educate!

My son started in 7th grade (last semester) and made Honor Roll. There have been a few issues, like getting him into the right classrooms, he was with slow learners, and was bored.. now he is in at the right level. The teachers are on top of any problems, and I have access to his progress, on line - excellent, no excuse not to know how he's progressing. So far, I am pleased. As I single parent I need all the help I can get. My son knows his education is important and trys to do his best in school and at home.... Lets see what the next semester brings.

I agree, sometimes as parents we have to skip the principal when there is a problem and go straight to the superintendent, because, (not to be disrespectful) he fails to solve conflict effectively. Teachers do their best, but they can only do so much at a school where there's lack of leadership. There's no fair (or any) discipline system, kids get away with pretty much anything they want if they know what strings to pull, and they brag about these things after school. Sadly, this school has been really a disappointment for our family.

My son has attended this school for the past 2 years and I am deeply disappointed with the principal. He does not recognize the real problems within the school, just covers them up. Why dont these children have a break time? Why are all kids punished for the behavior of a few? The principal does not want to address this or any other matters. He have no control of this school and needs to resign.

The problems I've had with the school administration are too numerous to mention here. Suffice it to say I have been extremely disappointed with the actions of the principal, and most of the school district staff. The needs of the child do not come first at this school. Let me say, however, that most of the teachers are excellent, know their subject matter well, and are very good at what they do.

I am not particularly fond of the new principal but my older children were there through a diferent principal and I loved the school. The new principal is not friendly nor does he really seem to be interested in the children. I have for the most part always loved the teachers that my children have had and this year is no exception.
