Change is difficult. This consolidation has shown that it can work and be beneficial for the students. It is sad that some aren't willing to understand that when making changes it involves some trial and error. The board, administration, and faculty continue to work hard to provide a quality education for their children. Yes, the high school struggled at first, but they have made great strides to improve.
One of the WORST schools I have ever put my children in. They demean the students. The Teachers do not allow their high school students to leave the lunch table unless they beg to go to the restroom. They are not allowed to talk during their lunch hour, now may I remind you these are High School students we are talking about. I have seven children and unfortunatly did not move soon enough for three of my children. I am now in a top school system and what my fifth grader is learning is what my three children learned their senior year. BE AWARE!!! If you want your child to get an education dont put them in W.Central High... ALLE
The consolitation of Union and Southern School District took place 4 years ago to become West Central School District. The Elementary and Middle schools are doing well. The atmosphere and enviornment forthe students is friendly and caring. The High School is struggling somewhat.
