Performance is very spotty as of fall 2012. The last two principals have tried to do great things with this school, and there have been pockets of excellence among the teaching staff. However, there has been a great deal of turnover lately in both staff and students, and overall things seem to be going in the wrong direction. Music programs have been cut, there is little instruction geared toward advanced students, and such students are punished by drill-and-kill basics months in adavance of high-stakes testing. Perhaps it is time to bail for Clovis.
Yes no communication if u notice bringing teachers with Poor or no younger children skills and parents That all they do is drop them of on the side of The curb like the bee
The teaching staff is above average, however the administrative and office staff are generally unfriendly which makes the entire atmosphere uninviting. The principal, as well as the PTC, are more concerned about getting church flyers home to the parents than those intended to keep parents informed of truly important things like school events.
Poorly organized and unfocused. This could have been best school in town but blew it. Notes come home the day of or after an event. Poor communication with parents. The web site tells less than nothing. No real services for advanced students, not only at the school level but district as well.
