I am a parent of a student at Prue and I also see that the drugs are a big problem in the JH. Some of the teachers want to just pass the students on to the next grade no matter if they can do the work or not. Their is a bully issue, most of the new kids are picked on a terribly. People have tried to start a pta and it has been turned down by the school officials. I think their are a lot of good ppl up there, but they are just not as concerned with the students as they should.

I used to teach at Prue, and let me tell you, within a month of starting there, I couldn't wait until the year was over and I could go somewhere else. The administration was terrible! They were so corrupt, dishonest, and unganized it was unbelievable. There were a lot of great kids there, and great teachers, too, but anybody decent won't stay long. No one good will stay and work there, or live in that town for that matter. It could be a really neat little town and school, but they have got to look at their principals there. The principals let kids away with way too much, and then gloss it over, make excuses, and blame it all on the teachers. It a whole culture of enablers and bullies in Prue, and it's a shame because there are a lot of good people out there who deserve much better.

As a former teacher I can attest to the many shortcomings of Prue School. Test scores may be rising some but that is because they can't get any lower. Look at the State Department Website. The turnover rate is astronomical and the leadership of administration should be criminal. They are an embarassment to all of us in the education field. As for the teachers there were some great teachers, but they are leaving as soon as they find somehting else. If they concerned citizens of Prue would stop causing problems and let the board deal with important issues it would be a much better place. If Prue School is so great why has attendance dropped so drastically? Because parents are pulling kids out as fast as they can.

Prue Elementary School is a wonderful school w/a great principal and awesome teachers! My child is receiving an excellent education there - and Test Scores were wonderful this past year spiraling up!!!! Teachers have to do their jobs right and if they dont yes they get rid of them - That is the way it should be.

Prue needs an administrative change from Elementary to the Superintendent. The Elementary has had over 80% of their teachers leave for the last three years. If anyone dares to disagree with any administrator, they are terminated. Prue has had some excellent teachers on staff and the Administration did not renew their contracts. Why? The teachers were smarter than the administrators? The teachers spoke their minds? There is no continuity from one year to the next, from Elementary to Middle to High School. Prue's test scores continue in a downward spiral and the Administration cannot get the fact that a school system must retain the teachers that can actually teach the students the objectives set out by the state. Special Education has generated a lot of money for the system, but very little if any was spent on educating the students. Very poor SE teachers for past five years.
