Prepare to homeschool or at least to do your own supplemental education at home. This district is a full year behind on education. What should be taught in 4th grade is taught in 5th instead. This district is catering to future janitors and felons not future leaders or business owners. They have no programs available for advanced kids. They are too busy trying to get the slow kids caught up. The has scored below government standards for many years in a row, but despite terrible performances, they still try to convince the community that if they are given more money, the level of education will improve. Money doesn't make smarter kids. The only way to improve this school is to remove the current administration and get ALL new blood. People who actually care about the kids, not just their own wallets.

my oldest kids are enrolled in this school, where they are taught not only the essentials, but also life lessons in compassion and respect.
