Lake Pleasant School 1

Previously, I believed this small school to be a decent one, with many friendly staff members and a caring, involved faculty. I am disappointed to have to change those beliefs. There is not only an awful problem with bullying within the school that is not being properly addressed, but the recent discrimination of a special needs student is something I find greatly disturbing. There is a lack of accountability and transparency within the administration that needs to be rectified immediately. The students are the ones suffering due to some very poor decisions made by the administration. For the sake of the children attending this school, I hope those in charge will strive to do better in the near future and set a much better example for them.

While the staff are all great people and decent at their job, the quality of education in the school itself seems to have gone downhill sharply. There is far too much emphasis on religion as well, which shouldn't even be involved in the school itself. Preparation for the future, including college and employment, is limited at best. Adding to the problem is an environment in which certain students are given preferential treatment over others depending on their parents' socioeconomic status. It prevents otherwise bright students from excelling in their studies. The school is small and has a very good teacher to student ratio, almost consistent with private schools. The capability and potential for an excellent education is definitely there, but never reached or worked toward. To top it off, the attitude taken by this district seems to be one of unwillingness to accept views, beliefs, or behavior that differ from their own; there is no room for diversity that would ultimately help children thrive socially and academically. Overall, the potential for a great education and experience is there, but current conditions make this school district sorely lacking on many levels.

I don't know where the first poster got their information, but he/she must not have had children in the same LPCS I know and love. The teachers, all staff, administration and school board have such an obvious love for this school that permeates into each student. The level of education is comparable to private or prep school. Not only is 'No Child Left Behind', every student is encouraged to excel! My children have gone on to other, larger schools at almost a grade level above average -- with writing, speaking and technology skills that rival many colleges!

Region appropriate limited education. Narrow focus on meeting childrens needs for the future, fails to prepare children for life beyond the small town politics/social structure. Faculty leadership strongly uncooperative with parents/students concerns. Prime example of ego getting in the way of education, misused tax dollars, and responsible for lack of econimic growth in surrounding community.
