- a
The administration starting with the principal continue to foster a toxic learning environment, threatening mass punishment on the students and threatening to cancel end of year activities if parents complain too much. This keeps parents from having a voice in the way our children are being developed and tells them its okay for school officials to do whatever they want regardless of whether or not they have parental consent.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Seriously the school is laughable, they allow things to happen with little or no reprucussions


Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
They do not respect out of the box thinking. They like pencil and paper.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Leadership is a joke! They cannot keep their answers straight.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
No support for kids. Local kids are treated like prizes while military are the scum


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Children in 6th grade only have spelling packets after the real teacher left.

The school has different rules for different people. The admin cannot get their act together. Our child's teacher was not qualified and the principal did the report cards. This came about after a wonderful teacher was driven out. Funny one good teacher after another leaves and puppets remain. Shame on admin and their lies. The school has little to offer kids, over crowded classrooms, eating outside since admin turned cafeteria into to a classroom instead of using the computer lab. (School is 1 to 1 computers.) Pets get what they want while others leave.



- a
Was a constant fight to get a IEP correct for my son. Also when moving they purposely sat on his school records while we are out of state so my son couldn't start school in his new state. I would not suggest putting a special needs kid in this school.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
It's difficult when there are up to 36 students in one classroom all day in 90 degree temperatures in August and most classrooms don't have any A/C. The school capacity is roughly 340 but there are currently over 500 students enrolled.

The previous post is correct that the school is only doing well because of the military families. The school's minimal extracurricular activities were reduced without notice at the beginning of the school year due to a lack of interest by the staff. The students for the sole remaining robotics team were selected in secret just 2 weeks into school year instead of holding tryouts for those interested. The school closed their library for the year to create another classroom with only a couple days notice and then closed the cafeteria on a Monday with notice being given the Friday before. The children are forced to eat outside on the ground unless their teachers let the students eat in the classroom with them. While 4 portable classrooms have been sitting unused for over a year. The school said they hope both will be open by August 2017.
