This school is very strong against bullying. There are multiple different events throughout the school year dealing with kindness and being a bully free zone. While I was attending this school, there was no major fights (the only one was from a student who was removed right away) and during my time, bullying was extremely little to none. :)
Our child is currently in 8th grade and has never experienced unfriendliness or unkind acts from her peers. I know this could fluctuate,in any given year in any school. However, at school they are very proactive when it comes to teaching students respect. There were positive changes done(as a result of parents being proactive ) in the advanced math curriculum for students and we are very pleased with the school's "open door policy"including the current Principal. My child took entry exams for a private highschool and scored the Highest score among all entrants. As a result of that, was offered a generous scholarship.But, with all the Positve changes done at the Highschool level, it will be a very hard decision to make!
Great school, especially with the new superintendent and principal focusing on a more robust curriculum. The majority of teachers are engaged, enthusiastic, and want the children to be successful. The school climate is positive and excited. My child is involved in lots of activities which is a huge benefit of a small school. Things have changed and are getting better. I recommend the school to anyone reading the posts.
We have found that MOST of the teachers at this school care deeply and work hard to help the kids. The only complaints I have are the Art Teacher (who just doesn't seem to care or like kids) and the P.E. Teachers whom always seem to be 'just hanin' out and are not physically involved in what the kids are doing and seem to just bark orders from the sidelines, especially when the kids are outside. I would call them apathetic at best. That said, the math, and science teachers are phenomenal. The English teaches are very good but a bit disorganized. Still I would say they are above average as test scores show. Over all it s a great school for its size. One suggestion give the front desk/receptionist lessons in friendliness and enthusiasm!
What a wonderful place! The staff and administration is very caring and fair to ALL students. My child has had a wonderful experience so far! I am looking forward to our remaining time in the district.
it not a good school at all the kids are mean the teachers and staff are not nice or encouraging and there lots of drugs and stealing and the music program is the only good thing about this school i personal say don't go there you will want to move schools like my daughter that says its horrible
Our 6th grader has had an excellent experience. The teachers have been fantastic and been very encouraging of our child's development. The music program has been wonderful and there have been many opportunities for sports and extracurricular activities.
