very little homework is given and most of what is given is not graded how much r they really learning if almost nothing is graded the teachers make the kids feel like the homework is important or even necessary to complete since it is not graded

maybe in the more popular kids who don't have any disabilities if the child isn't popular or has disabilities the lets them fall through the cracks the school would rather ignore them and their struggles than help them and their parents solve the problems

my son has adhd and odd and the school repeatedly blamed my son for every incident he was involved in some were his doing but there were several situations that my son was being bullied and teachers wouldn't help when he asked for it so he defended himself when he wasn't able to walk away and escape the kid my son was even bullied by the dean of students because he wanted to sit on the floor and work instead of at the table with him staring at him. this school is full of negligent people and uncaring. my son has psychological and emotional scars from the way he was treated by students and personnel if I had a choice I would send my kids to east marshall school district my kids didn't have nearly this much trouble or bullying at east marshall

cliques throughout the school bullying is permitted to continue teachers don't want to take the time or put in the effort to help kids or stop the bullying school officials don't seem concerned with helping the unpopular kids or the kids with behavioral disabilities like they aren't important enough
