I have never seen or experienced such "politics" as is in Dufur & at the Dufur School. Its all about WHO you are, or WHO you are related to, and of course, HOW good you are in sports. There are some Families, Teachers & Staff that truly care, but most of what goes on is so fake & definitely a double standard. If your child is one of the few accepted & approved then they are amongst the "in" but if like most and your child doesnt "fit into their standard" you & your family are in for a bumpy and unpleasant ride. So sad but true and Im not sure that things could ever be any different, it has been this way for so many generations...I was a student in grade school, then came back to raise my family , my children went their from k-12 but those last 5 years were totally brutal. The gossip, judgement and down right ugliness, was more than we could handle-so we moved away. Thank goodness our kids are all grown up....but now I pray for my neices, nephews, & grand-children.
School focus is completely on athletics. Academics are horrible in middle and highschool. Double standards and extremely unethical behavior from several staff members.
school refuses to do something about another child bullying my child on the bus I myself reported it and they say that its the childs responsibility to report it. It shouldn't have to even come to the point my children had to be removed from the school. And there remark when I said I am pulling them. GOOD. Please stop the bullying in the world
