Disrespect is horrible at this school.This school has a bullying environment.Bullies are protected and in some cases made heroes.One victim dropped out after a physical assault while the bully remained.Students threaten teachers with little reprisals.The principal has done nothing to stop the bullying beyond posting generic posters.Teachers receive no backing from the principal and are on their own concerning classroom discipline.Again, disrespect is the general atmosphere at this school. The principal's open door policy for students is a disservice to them.These coddled students are allowed to leave their class to go tell on the teacher when teachers try to actually teach and have a productive classroom.Turnover is very high when someone retires and there is an opening. One department has had 5 different teachers in as many years.Students cheat on coursework and any teacher who addresses this issue is told the students were working in groups.Excuses are always made for students and no teachers better not try to change things. Students run this school along with one of the secretaries who yells at anyone she pleases.This school in a nut-shell: disrespectful and bullying school.

Great group of students and teachers. The parents are very positive and supportive to students and teachers. Students are strongly encouraged to attend college. Lots of school spirit.

Sports focus on sportsmanship because they never win games. curriculum was sub-par, there was no Physics and the only foreign language offered is Spanish. Five girls in my graduating class were pregnant (one with a second child) and there was no expectation for students to go to college unless it was KSU for something agriculture related. The community has nothing to offer in regards to culture or recreational facilities. Putting your kids in this school is a bad idea unless they are content with ignorance and poverty.

Very hands-on administration and staff. Excellent special education department!! Sports teams emphasize good sportsmanship, by athletes and student body. Super drama sponsors.
