our school is one of the best public schools in kansas and our children are getting a wonderful education here. i wouldnt send my son to anyother school around. Take a look at big city schools and how they r ran compared to ours, huge difference and if u havent experienced that you wouldnt know. the teachers can only do so much and most of them already use money out of their own pockets to make classrooms more enjoyable and provide our children with more. if you want someone to blame u need to gook at our government or maybe you should just quit your job and teach your children yourself. Also im not saying all teachers are great because iv seen some who dont care and are just collecting a pay check and i personally think teachers should b paid based on how well his or her classroom does.

This school is a big disappointment! I have lived in this community all my life and went to school here. Special Education is NOT what it use to be and for this the children who need special education services are the ones who are suffering. I feel that the administration makes and changes policies as they go along. I know for a fact that Sp.ED services get more funding than the regular ed. does. I wonder where all the money goes. My child is in sp. ed, as a matter of fact he qualifies for SMH services, but he doesn't even see a teacher unless his behavior is bad. He is to receive speech service that has not happened in two years. It is up to his para to do all for my child. I even have to search and buy the items that I think will benefit for my son to learn. I was even asked to provide construction paper for my child. This school needs to focus on what they can do to really benefit this children and stop focusing on 'how everyone has to behave'. What happened to the 'No Child Left Behind'? This school goes by a point system and once you point out your out! Then you may return 180 after suspension. Gee! I would just quit when I turn of age. Why get the easy way out. I hope somebody reads this that will may a difference. GOD BLESS THAT PERSON!

This school is run by very controlling administration in the district. There are very few services for special education children in the district and there is a concerted reluctance by all levels of administration to provide needed services to special education children, especially if services need to be contracted outside of district for the benefit of the child and other children in the student's classroom. The teachers are very controlling and even verbally abusive to children in the classrooms. When parents complain about the teachers, administration does not follow through with a thorough investigation of the complaint and covers up the facts. Administration and teachers do not pay attention to children's test scores and intervene when a child is in serious need for assistance. I had to almost request due process in order to receive special education assistance for my son with dyslexia, only after I paid for an outside evaluation.
