My children were transferred to Baxter from Riverside after the budget referendum was voted down last year. I have to say that we entered the new school with open minds, hoping it would be a positive experience, but it hasn't been. With the playground overlooking the cemetery, where the kids are yelled at by the noon aides to stop watching the funerals taking place, it opened alot of fear and questions from my kids. Secondly, the teachers and other staff in this school are impatient and stoic. Riverside welcomed my kids, Baxter merely puts up with them. We are moving out of the district altogether, because the district has run the education programs into the ground, and schools are the first thing we will check out before putting down roots again.
