Special education system defiantly needs work and maybe an audit. They specifically need to work on measurable progress with data driven results specific to the student. They need training in special education laws. They give disinformation at IEP meetings and decide services placement before meetings have started ( esy and at).We feel most of this is push back from adminstration to cut costs and educators being overloaded.

So disappointed by this entire school system. Thier complete lack of supervision of the student body lead to my child being tortured by other students on a daily basis because he was different. Children with special needs should be protected, but that will never happen in this school!

This school has a great music, art, and sport activitie list. There are a lot of extracurricular activities to do. Including math league, knowledge bowl, yearbook comitity, book fair crew, etc. I know a lot of people who happen to go to this school and they really liked it. They get a lot of help on work if they need it, there are tutors to help you out and it doesn't cost a thing. I was in math league for all three years there and it was really fun and i also got help on my math homework there. We got to travel out of town a lot and compete. Another fun thing was Book fair it was for eighth graders only and it was really fun helping out. Out of 1-10 I would give this school a 8.5. It is a really good school to go to, I loved it.
