i don't know how it is in the school because i am going into 6th grade now but of what i have heard it's not bad
There are only a handful of staff members that are worth a care. Its a shame that due to reputation and location this school has very minimal to offer. However, there are some students that are motivated and 'exceptional' who deserve better. Given their environment it is hard to accommodate and nurture their academic abilities.
the teachers there are all helpful and are willing to listen to their students
This is a great school. Teachers are friendly and parents are always welcome.
The high school is definitely getting better, they have special honors program that give not only good education but gives alot of college credits to graduate high school.
This school definitely has potential to get better. I believe that the teachers do not challenge the students enough. I believe that there should be more activities in this school for all grades. My son was in the 6th grade last year and was not able to get on the basketball team. I also believe that the parents need to put more pressure on their child as far as letting them know that school is a place for learning and it is not a hang out. Last year open house and parent-teachers was lacking a lot of parents.
