We moved and transferred my kids here which was a big mistake because this school is horrible!!! Note, my kids were some of the most well behaved kids at their other school less than 3 months ago. I tried to get my daughter out of the class she was in due to being picked apart by the teacher and the staff does nothing to help. The teacher puts her with some tutor instead of actually trying to teach her. All they do is make cookie cutter excuses why they won't move her to another teacher. Not only will they not move her they want to put her on pills to calm her down!?!? My daughter gets hurt by other students and they don't even call me!!! I made the choice to put in a transfer that was denied and will be trying very hard everyday FOR THE REST OF TIME to get her into her into another school before her outlook changes for the worse even more!!! She screams everyday to me about going to that school! Stay away from this school!!!
I do not like this school. My children atteneded this school from 1999 to 2001. I do not feel the teachers teach very well and the guidance office personel were awful. Do not let your children attend this school. There are other options like virtual school if you can use someone elses address and have your child dropped off and pick them up at that address. Like my husband went to pace high in a milton disrtrict. HIs mother used his grandmothers address and picked him up after school. I pulled my older kids and they went to bagdad on my mothere in laws area and I picked them up there. Just a thought. My other children go to Bennett Rusell I love this school and EVERYONE there!
I have a child at this school and I have made my mind up that after all the problems I have had, I will do whatever I can to place my child in another school. There are some teacher that just want to preach the children need to be on drugs and I would love to when these teachers got there Doctor's Degree.
Kids are not taught to attone for their actions. My son was deliberately injured by another student and was made to feel it was his fault by the staff at this school. I ended up paying for his medical bills ($3K worth) bc the school wouldn't help out. Their are good teachers here but they focus on the state tests in the spring. The principle is approachable but reminds me of a chamelon in his mannerisms. I have had 2 graduate from here and one currently enrolled. Unfortunately I can't have him transfered bc of where we live. Teachers are somewhat "selective' on which student they like and treat them accordingly.
