This school has great discipline policies, however, they are never followed. I believe the rules are there for show and to make things look good. But when it comes down to it, if the troublemaking child has links to either a school board member, a teacher, or someone with money in the town, he/she will not get in any trouble. Furhtermore, if that same child has an issue with another child, the other child will get the book thrown at him.
The school is clean to the point of feeling 'cold'.The secretary is a gossiper. The principal doesn't keep the children safe because he allows bullying to go on. The assistant principal tries to control situations but principal won't let him enforce the rules. The quality of teaching is great. The lunchroom supervisors are verbally abusive to children.The music, pe and art programs are great. The PTO is dishonest and holds onto money that the children have raised and won't spend it on fun things for the children.
What a great school. The teachers are great and it is probably the cleanest school in Illinois.
Wonderful teaching staff at this school, very pleased with the principal & assistant on discipline and values, disappointed in the staff in the cafeteria. Very clean and tidy school, a very safe school as well.
