Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This school is horrible. The teachers don't seem to teach but try experimental methods like class participation is worth more then test grades. As for principals the Assistant Principle is nothing but a big bully throwing his power at kids for intimidation. which he uses to try to intimidate the parents as if the were 10. Grow up you can intimidate 10 year old, what a big man you are. As for parent involvement they will call you when your child gets in trouble, way after it happens. Ad only if they don't look bad. But they won't work around your schedule so make sure your home all day to answer the phone don't have a job to pay your own bills because you may not be available if your child gets in trouble.

The staff members of this school are very nice,but I'm in 6th grade and is not allowed to play any middle school sports.I think that is very unfair to the 6th graders that only the 7th and 8th graders at the school can play on the team.They really should at least let the 6th graders be on the team.I haven't tryed their food yet so I can't rate their food.I have been packing my lunch since 4th grade.I am new here and only been here for 2 1/2 months.There are many new staff members here like the fcs teacher,a new gym teacher and a new libaraian.Some teachers are not so polite like some teachers and staff don't say hi to me or nothing.I also had trouble with my lock too.The principal had ordered me a new lock that looked like a regular lock like on a fence and a key.

The rating of 5 out of 10 is accurate, this school is mediochre at best. There are no honors classes and so students of above average intelligence and students with learning disabilities are lumped together - a situation which is impossible for teachers and students alike. Exceptional students will find themselves bored to tears while those who need extra help will wonder why their classmates don't share their struggles. This school has also denied funding for Gifted Student programs which sought to correct the imbalance in education. The school's teachers try hard, but without support they will never find a way to provide students of all levels of ability with adequate education.
