I think you should know that my school school is student centered offering a safe and healthy environment that fosters academic success. My school Administrators have respect and consideration for the students, staff, faculty and the community. Collaborations among the staff ,faculty and the parents provides for a healthy environment internally and externally. My school has highly trained professionals that are innovative and creative. My school operates in an environment that is warm and friendly and welcome visitors with open arms. I like that my school strives for excellence in academics and readily adjust to new innovative ideas with the focus on producing lifelong learners. My school could improve with enhanced technology, and environmental attractiveness that will attract and inspire more students which will contribute to even greater academic success.

Although the school has been "failing," so are most schools in the Delta. As a parent I have been very impressed with most of the faculty. My child has received a good education here and has teachers who really care. Hopefully that will show in the test scores.
