The quality of acadmeics is amazing. My child also has fun while learning, and ever since then his grades have shot up! The availabilty of extracurricular activites is great! My son is was in band, chorus, basketball, and football last year (7th grade) and enjoyed every moment! They also have an activity bus which i thought was lovely on account of the last school he attended didn't! I am also very pleased with the level of parental involvement. There is a parent counsil which meets frequently and any parent is allowed to be on this counsel. Also the teacher send at progress reports all the time! They also do it by email too, so you don't have to worry about signing a million papers! I am sooo pleased with Southeast Polk!
