The hard work of the teachers in this school is undermined by administrators with agendas that are contrary to the well-being of the kids. Policies have been implemented by the superintendent and the school board which prevent teachers from meeting the needs of kids who fall outside of a narrowly defined average. My child is one of many who now travel out of the Trinidad school district for the opportunity to be educated instead of just being babysat by her teachers.

Poor overall test scores. In the lower 53 percent of the state. Constant bullying!! Check the state scores for this school.

I give this one star only because some of the teachers and one of the counselors work really hard and care about the children. While a nice looking school is better than one that isn't, it really is the only other thing FPES has to offer. The curriculum is lacking, and this becomes apparent if you have ever had the experience of school elsewhere in the state. Special needs children are at a disadvantage here as well. While parents should not be screaming and yelling at the school, that could be better handled by better policies, not calling the police. Parental involvement is purely up to the parents, but not encouraged like it should be.

The principle and the counselor has favorates whom get by with quite a bit. If you get on there bad side they will call child protective services and the resource advisor at the drop of a hat. Parents who have had arguements with the principle or counselor have been known to get arrested. Students who the principle hates has been known to have there school general records butchered with slander.

Administrators are to strict with kids, for example they can only reach a certain noise level at lunch. I think if they are otherwise being good they should be able to be loud at lunch. They are also restricted on the reading level they can check out in the library. This is based on a system that monitors going from level to level, however I don't see a problem with letting students check out one book at a higher level, if they want to try it out and practice at a more difficult level.
