This school system is more worried about the "wealthy" students and the kids who play sports. If your child has a mental disability such as ADHD, they consider your kid to "not be college material" and tell you that they have other options for "those" kids. I was told in an I.E.P. meeting that my child was not college material and they were discussing how they handle other kids instead of what they are going to do to help my child. My son went to Sikeston schools all of his life and after this we have moved. I would not recommend Sikeston schools to anyone! They are good until you hit Junior High. After 6th grade, you will want to move too. The Junior High Principle, J. Sullivan, doesn't like kids, she doesn't know what IMPACT is and requested that I, the parent, explain to her what a State Wide Parental Advocacy group was. If a Principle doesn't know about the state wide assistance, then they sure don't need to be working in education. Plus, for them to assume that a kid with ADD or ADHD cannot make it to college, they should be fired!! I contacted Sikeston's Special Education Director about my concerns and nothing was done. This school system is a joke!!!

I was very dissapointed in Sikeston. I felt the school only got you ready to attend SEMO and that was it. You weren't meant to ever live anywhere else other than Sikeston. My first year there was all review from when I lived in another state.

I attended up to 9th grade in Sikeston schools. The school offers great academic courses and really does offer alot for the kids who survive. There is so much bullying, drug abuse, and clicks there that concentrating on school work is impossible. The school has poor security and drug control. Not sure of the drop out rate but I am most certain that it is unusually high. Teacher turnover is terrible as well.

I have had 2 children graduate from Sikeston and have wonderful things to say about the teachers and staff. Mr. Williams is great to work with and he is great with the kids. They know when he means business. You have to have someone who is willing to go the extra mile for a child and he does that. Thanks to Mr. Williams my daughter continued her schooling. Thank you Mr. Williams.
