Parents BEWARE... I was a very active parent volunteer. The good: The school is a very nice updated & modern facility. The sports program all though limited is very good. Most teachers are mostly good to excellent in the elementary school (K-12 is all one building) The bad: Elementary school HAD some wonderful teachers & still have a handful of wonderful teachers. The principle is selectively getting rid of the (old school) teachers & bringing in her new (i mean fresh out of college) teachers strictly because of money & intimidation factor (opinion). Don't get me wrong, to bring in SOME inexperience teachers is good, but not all, I mean over 8 teachers in the past 2 yrs. in elementary alone. The new teacher s classrooms are very chaotic, no discipline. We are now classified as a Title I. Less than a handful of gifted student programs but plenty of money & programs for challenged children which isn't a terribly bad thing, but moneys should be better divided equally into multiple levels. Bullying is a problem. They talk the talk, but not walk the walk. Bottom line is if you have an average to above average child, please do your own research before you choose Pine River/Backus.

The teacher's and staff at PRB high school really care abou the chilren. Unfortunately the sports program is lacking a lot. The only way a child can play in a team sport is if their parent works at the school or owns a business in town. If you are looking for caring teacher this is the place to send your child. If you want you child to play sports you will need to find a different school.
