not a good school at all first of all to save money they throw the preschool kids and kindergarten on the same bus with big kids and teens and start school at high school hours (bus comes at 7:00 school end at 2:20) which is too early for little ones!!!they are focused on attendance to the an absurd degree but not on teaching each child as an individual they don't let you even meet the teacher until the first day of school and there hiring choices leave much to be desired..lets just say a lot of the teachers lack patience and fail to get the kids excited about learning instead push unnecessary rules that stifle most children and make them dread school..i'm going to be home schooling my kids next year because i don't want to move just because a school fails on a basic level ...this schools fault lays in obsessing over adhering to no child left behind while leaving many behind ... we should not make the children suffer...p.s. very unhealthy food choices in the cafeteria and no gardening program which most surrounding schools already are involved in....

While it's hard to discredit the teaching that goes on in a school, I must completely agree with the previous post. We approached the principal and our child's teacher with the request that they offer more challenging work. We were told that they do not have an accelerated learning program and that if we felt she needed more, we could certainly add onto her studies at home. There certainly is a belief that what they're doing for the children is "good enough" which is why we sold our home and moved our family out of the district. It's unfortunate because we certainly did feel welcome there. We just didn't feel challenged.

While necessary in a community that is geographically isolated and reliant on sports as a means to send children to college, those who seek to have top-notch education for their children need to look elsewhere. The focus is on teaching basic skills to children who might not otherwise learn them rather than challenging students who might need it. Parents are involved, but the 'it was good enough for me' attitude prevails.
