The curriculum is very weak at the middle school. Parents may be happy because it is so easy for kids to get an A. Then they get to high school and under perform on the ACT and SAT. There is no foreign language or advanced language arts. Advanced math is restricted to a handful of children. The principal is unprofessional, passive aggressive and rude. She wore yoga pants to 6th grade orientation. Taking my child out of the district.

Not sure where the person from 2007 got their information about the programs here, but the curriculum in this school is the best in the entire area. They offer advanced electives where kids can learn about forensic science and how DNA evidence and CSI crime solving techniques relate to science. They also have an expanded art program, studio art, where kids who have an interest can take this as a class and do actual studio projects. There are programs at this school for every kids talent and ability. Most of the other schools in the area offer the kids a choice of band, chorus or art, that's it. Also, this is a closed district and therefore many of the behavior problems that came with School of Choice in other districts aren't here. No kid is perfect, but I never have to worry about my kids' safety at school.

Programs have been dropped to the point that the curriculum allows for no choices to be safely made by students. Students are directed into taking classes that they have no interest in. These are elective classes beyond core classes. The school board and superintendent have created this situation.

I think this school is very good. I attended Boyd W. Arthurs and I am going to be sad when I have to go to high school. Sure, High School will be nice but nothing beats going to junior high. I used to want to go to another school district. But, when I went to Arthurs middle school, nothing compared to it. I enjoy the schools teachers. They are respectable and helping. They will offer after school tutoring and if I need it I will attend. The schools principal and the asistant principal both of them make this school enjoyable. I hope when I am in high school the school will still be enjoyed. I have one more year left to be a knight.
