While I was in school, many of the teachers played favorites, the principal never seemed to care, and the students just have no manners. I read an earlier review on this school about new kids in the school, and new kids were extremely welcome.... Into the popular crowds. There were one or two teachers there who were absolutely amazing and care about the kids. Kermit Tate is wonderful and never played favorites. He cared about his students, and was also the track coach. This school is going downhill. It'll be closed within 10, or even less. The school board cares more about funneling money into their own pockets instead of investing in their teachers and school.
Connie Carpenter, Kermit Tate, Cheryl Whiteside, Penny Jones, Marina Ward, Don Collins; all of these teachers pushed their students to do their best, and to reach for the stars. You couldn't ask for a better group of people. They will forever hold a special place in my heart. I will never forget them.
I'm very disappointed in the quality of "education" my child was getting. Many of the teachers are near retirement age and don't really teach. He had a teacher who gossiped with the students for entire classes (that was when he was actually in class), another who was gone almost 1/2 of the year with meetings and sports, he did not have a math book because there were no books, and kids that never turned in their homework got A's. The students are rude and don't like new kids to come into "their school". Some of the boys would go into the girls locker room while they were changing and the principal and P.E. teacher did nothing about it. The water tastes really bad and leaves a gritty feeling in your mouth (probably a health issue). Overall I was very disappointed in this school.
