I have 2 daughters attending Sarcoxie schools. I went to Sarcoxie schools also. There are alot of challanges facing our children today that weren't a big deal when I Was in school. I think our school has alot of good qualities. However there a is always room for improvement. As a former student and now a parent I am concerned about the children that have either behavioral disabilities or learning disabilities. Some of these kids just are not getting the propper guidence they need. It is my belief that as a comunity we need to put more effort into finding solutions to situations that effect our children. My children like Sarcoxie and so do I. Always room for improvement.

I have two children that attend Sarcoxie High School. This school has been great for my children. The teachers are very nice and the school is very well kept.

I was a student of Sarcoxie High, and feel I had a wonderful education. I had teachers who were there for me day or night all year around. Anytime I needed any extra help I could go to any teacher, principal, or secretary and was offered the help I needed. Not only in matters of education, but also, personal. I feel the overall rule was very much education first and sports second. We were also taught the value of hard work and education. Every teacher I ever had in the seven years I attended Sarcoxie schools was always concerned with my education as well as, the students around me. I am sad that other people do not see that. The faculty and staff go above and beyond every day! I am proud to have graduated a BEAR!

I feel this school needs to remember the kids are there for an education. Sports are important but secondary, practices at all hours, changes with no notice, parents should be notified. Both parents. Check kids grades, if they are low, no sports until the grades are up. Education comes first, homework comes second, family time next then sports. I have asked for copies of grade cards, never got them. I have 1 in high school and 1 in middle school, I feel both are below average in their education, I worry what will happen when its time for college, then the school will say oh well we tried and blame it on the parent. Yet we are never notified for teacher conferences we fight an ex-wife and the school.

Sarcoxie schools, to me seem to have farely low student to teacher ratio, yet the teaching staff doesn't seem to pay attention to the students education. I have a step-son enrolled in the Sarcoxie School District. He, like the majority of his classmates that I have met, are far behind the educational level I was at at their age. I also attended a smaller school. So, I know this isn't a comparison of 'apples to oranges'. My step-son should have never reached the grade he's in with the level of education he has. The student ratio is only 11-12 students per teacher and these kids are just being shuffled on to the next grade totally unprepared and uneducated. Education comes first!
