Pawnee Grade School2

With such a small school, you would think that the attention to detail would be better with individual students. Teachers tended to not be very helpful or informative with parents when students are faltering in a subject. When it was note, oftentimes it was too late to intervene and help improve the student. Teachers do not use email much, if at all, which is not good with how most young parents like to communicate. They need to be better at this. Leadership is not good at fostering a culture with teachers that is complimentary to parent engagement. They tend to be more confrontational than helpful in instances where children are challenged with learning activities. Some teachers are very good, but others need to be let go as far as I'm concerned, especially in regards to the way they teach math and arithmetic. I would say that the majority are average.
Pawnee is a great school if you want your students to get a great educations and not have to deal with gangs and drug problems. The grade school sports are very good. Our volleyball teams go to state almost every year (this year won 3rd) and our boys basketball team is third in the county. If you are looking for girls basketball, I advise you not to come to Pawnee. Baseball is fairly good, as our boys made 4th in state two years ago.
