The school is pretty, although the classes, teachers, and staff either don't care about their jobs, and spend their time comparing paychecks. Or complaining about their work to students. As for being a NCLB school, their policy is to send any troubled/learning disabled students/children off to other schools, which are even worse.
Small town school run by small town politics. Lots of big fish in this small pond. NOT a great place to prepare for college. Lots of teachers here who themselves were "C" students. No real challenging classes. Does NOT live up to it's supposed goal of being a supportive learning environment where all are encouraged. Very political. The former superintendent once made fun of my sister within ear shot of me. An okay school if your goals are to never leave Greene County.
The staff and teachers are all very nice. However, if your child is exceptionally bright but does not test into the gifted program, there are no programs to continue to challenge your child. It is very frustrating. I don't feel that my child has been challenged nearly enough. He started out in Pre-K and is now getting ready to enter into the 3rd grade.
The teachers and staff are very likable and easy to work with. My kids have been nothing but happy with their teachers there. The school is always doing their best to ensure that the students are getting a sound education, and getting additional tutoring/mentoring if its needed.
