Great, small school where we have wonderful teachers and administrators. State scores would be higher bur with a school that is 80% Spanish, many of whom do not want to learn, or their parents do not want to learn, lowers the Americans scores. We have had to lengthen he Christmas break because when many return to Mexico for the break, they stay longer than the three weeks off. With this action comes a lose of funding by the state as schools are paid, I believe, $30 for everyday the student is present in school. Lost funding and low interest in learning the English language have hurt our school.
High expectations in the classroom taught by hard working, dedicated, qualified staff who are committed to student success. Teachers stay and are anchored to this school and community. Good support in counseling center, and administrators support educators and students well. Many opportunities for students to compete in athletics and student career technical programs by taking animals to the fair and seeking student leadership offices beyond the local level.
