My daughter just transfered to Lone Grove High School. She loves it. The students, staff, and coaches have been wonderful. God has answered our prayers. She loves to learn and Lone Grove provides teachers that are preparing students for college or the work world. They expect the best and she likes the challenge. Longhorns all the way. Not to mention great coaches ( Basketball and Softball).
My fifth grader transferred to this school and before coming to Lone Grove Intermediate he had always been on the honor roll. Now he is barely passing. In meetings with the teachers there have been NO solutions, only critisism toward my child. My child feels very unwelcome by the staff there. They pride themselves for being a 'great expectations' school and pass alot of the pressure to maintain that onto the students. The teachers do not have time to spend with the students one on one. And most do not update the grades on the website. I have never been more frustrated with a school. If a student is not 'in' meaning gone there their entire childhood. They are left behind.
My step daughter made failing grades, 20's and 30's all year, and they still passed her. We brought her to texas, and she is now making a's and b's - all it took was someone to care, and not push her out.
