Unless you have a child who is sports oriented, OR come from the "right name, right money" families, the schools in Humboldt Co. do not care about the students. They just shove them through the system & get them out the doors, not caring if they have even bothered to learn how to read, do math, or learned any basic skills that will help them in the workplace. It's no wonder our graduation rate is in the 50th percentile while the surrounding counties are in the high 80's & 90's. Makes one think, doesn't it...
When Teachers are being ALLOWED to pick and choose who they bully and try to make an example of to their fellow classmates and NOTHING is done about it. WHERE IS the HONESY, INTEGRITY and FAIRNESS?! There ISN'T any!!!!
As an educator, I am appalled at the indifference to student bullying by teachers. Specifically, Mr. Gary Steinman--one math teacher--repeatedly humiliates, intimidates, and shames his students. Counselors are aware of his bullying tactics in the classroom, but continue allowing students to be victimized or traumatized by him. Pull your child out of his classroom, middle school is difficult enough--he does psychological harm to some of his students. Typically, when students ask questions, need more explanation of lessons, and ARE EAGER TO LEARN. Plain and Simple, Mr. Steinman is a bully.
We are moving to Winnemucca shortly, have one daughter that will be at this school, but after the reviews, am seriously considering homeschool or K-12. Why isn't something done if is is really this bad? Will a nice kid survive here? I had to rate to comment although I know nothing of the school.
