A good solid school in academics and atheletics. The school has room for improvement and growth. The administration lacks consistence, has a very caring attitude towards students and staff. The parents seem to have one concern, that of their child and often try to manipulate the school for their child. Many parents are involved and many more never show up to school except for problems. Support from parents is great for those students who are active and involved in the school. The rest of the parents view public school as a baby sitter until the age of 18 and are never involved. All will compain about issue around them and few will praise what really needs the praise the learning process. Read the other reviews and you will understand.
Poor administrative leadership (in the building and in the district) has resulted in a decline in the academic and athletic programs. Parental involvement is given 'lip service' and is limited to passive involvement. The administrators seem to operate with the knowledge that if change or reform can be delayed, for a few years, students will graduate and their parents will not maintain their enthusiasm for promoting change.
The school has alot of good kids going to it and some exceptional teachers. One of these teachers is the music teacher. The band program hasn't been given the recognition for their accomplishments and effort. They are number one in the state which, to me, shows what team work and dedication can do.
A good school that has its problems. A staff that cares but is not treated professionally by administration. Students have a general desire to learn but many students and parents show little concern for the value of education. The staff is generally down because of the constant changing of school policies and educational directives for learning.
