My son was in the special education program, transferring in from a neighboring district. I was aware of the past history with parents suing the school district but was assured by school district staff that all had been remedied and they were extremely proud of the progress they had made....therefore I was coming in with an open mind. My mind changed drastically before school even started when they placed my son the lowest functioning classroom, when he should have been placed in another room. Once school started, the teacher informed me that she was having all the kids go "back to the basics". I questioned this thought and asked her "why not stick to his iep, as well as the same with the other students". Needless to say, she did not comment. On another occasion, I stopped by to pick my son up and all the students were cutting paper for scratch pads for the office. I again asked why he wasn't learning and being taught, no answer from the teacher. All of this took place in the autism room. After a few months there and a lot of regression from my son, we transferred him out of the school and is now thriving elsewhere. As for the district, my calls were never returned. Shameful.

horrible school it's extremely cliquey and there is a major issue with bullying I do not recommend you taking your children here

Let me make it clear though, the teachers were VERY good with my son. This is truly a district issue in regards to how the Special Education Department is ran and WHO is running it. I will give one more example; several years back before my son was a student there. The parents sued the district because they stopped letting the Special needs students use the pool, even though it was in their IEP. The parents won. Those students were then allowed to use the pool. HOWEVER, when those students left, the district stopped letting the students use the pool. Coming up with "reasons" why they couldn't and basically gave the "soon" reply when teachers asked, but it never manifested. I truly believe that CURRENTLY the special needs students are seen as something they HAVE to deal with, not caring what type of environment they give them. I feel sorry for the teachers. My dream for this district, is that someone higher up, evaluates the special education deparment and "cleans house" and allows some new directors to come in and run it. By the way, I transferred my child and he loves school again and has all his needs met.

This school is an absolute joke! My faughter came home crying because of the unfriendly people at. This school. She used to be a straight a student but now she gets D's and F's, because of the people making fun of her for getting good grades. The teachers did a 5 minute powerpoint in the beginning of class everyday and then went to their desk and went on facebook. They do nothing about misbehavior ithis school. You go to ISS which is in school suspension and they let you call your parents, so most kids call their cellphones. I give this school 0 stars and think no parent should send their kids to this school

I am not seeing the positives submitted by the previous raters...there are major issues at this school! While there are some great kids at this school, the majority of the kids are rude and have no respect for teachers or each other. There seem to be zero consequences for this terrible behavior some kids demonstrate...the teaching staff is talented yet they spend most of their time babysitting rather than teaching and are given negative reviews and full responsibility of this rotten behavior...the kids need to be held responsible for their own behavior and parents need to take a more active role in their child's education for anything to change!
