My son attends this school and I am very happy with how he as a student and his grades turn out. A honor roll student all AAP classes.

It is true, new administration lack of leadership and sincere efforts place a huge obstacle for parent involvement. On the other hand, general education for non disable kids seems to be fair while special education is mediocre. Children with disabilities are been dismissed 20 to 30 minutes prior the dismissal of non disable children. Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) meetings are a waste of time since they are micro managed by administration (including the Special Education Director of Richland One) who make prior meetings in order control the possible expressions offered at the meeting and the potential outcome (always in favor of the district). Also, dynamic programs like Safe Routes to School were rejected by the by the principal in 2010 because "she believes her school is NOT a good candidate for this federal program", even though is open for any school in the nation regardless of location. I rate this school 2.

New Administration is not approachable and does not make a sincere effort to gain parental involvement from ALL parents. School lacks a welcoming enviornment. Inspite of this my student has done well but I think if these elements would change the school would be better.

Out of 10 I rate this school an 8.5 for the overall education the students receive, but after the decision to start uniform wearing I rate the school a 6. I do not understand how a public school can make students wear uniforms manditory. There are other school in the same district that are public but do not have to wear uniforms. What about all the money that parents wasted on purchasing their children's clothing for the school year? When will they be able to wear all those clothes they already have in their closets? I would feel a lot better if they would have picked the enitre district to wear uniforms, but just picking one school is not making any sense. I am a very upset and disturbed parent.
