They hired an Elvis impersonator to teach and coach. Enough said. Elvis would probably serve jail time for his shady past, preying on young girls and doing pills. Shame on the district for hiring the distraction. He also bragged about sleeping with a younger teacher at his last job.
To much fraternizing between students and teachers. I think any teacher that is friends with any students on social media should be terminated immediately. There are multiple staff members that socialize with students on social media and I just find it inappropriate no matter how you look at it.
Most of the students have a "I'll just deal with it to get by" attitude. I think it is that way because the teachers are too busy playing on their phones and worrying about gossiping every chance they get and only a few teachers will actually take the time to deal with students like they should.
We transferred out of state and moved to this area because of Bixbys rating. We have found the elementary and intermediate school to be satisfactory but the middle school and high school is awful. Faculty is incompetent and does not work well with students and parents. Unfortunately my elementary kids had harder homework than my high school students. Very disappointed that in core classes they give you "participation" points and do not grade the homework.
One daughter had surgery on voting feet and teachers would not work with her on keeping books in class, dismissing her early, or helping her get to class. She was actually knocked to the ground and had to be taken to dr. Thought we might have to redo the surgery
We moved to this area because of Bixbys rating. The elementary and intermediate schools are satisfactory but the Middle School and High Schools are awful. Faculty is incompetent and not willing to work with parents and students. Unfortunately my elementary kids had harder homework and more accountability than my high school kids. Instead of grading their work they receive "participation" points. Very disappointed and we will be moving from this area
