Superficial, phony, insincere and obnoxious. School only cares about smart, advanced students and children of Aiken Co. employees. All other students are third class and treated completely different. No teacher's child ever gets in any trouble. They don't have to stand outside in the cold, rainy mornings, they freely roam around the school's halls, they never get failing grades, never repeat a grade and never attend summer school and are never suspended or expelled. The school is repulsed and aggravated concerning having to deal with the handicapped, special education students and the ones who struggle in school each day. The school is extremely irritated about continuing each year as a school in need with low test scores. They harbor serious hard feelings toward the students whose scores are low which causes the school to be tagged with undesirable labels. V
My child has attended this school now for 2years and 1/2 his 6th grade year. I really like it, the teachers are really good and stays in contact with you with your child anytime you have a question and gets back by email really quick. The only thing I don't like is their website. They don't have enough information, I wish there were more on the website about the school. For instance when you click on calendars there is nothing there.
I have now attended this school for one year and I do not think there is not as much of a bullying problem as some parents have said. As for 'playing favorites', its more along the lines of, if you behave correctly you'll get on the 'good' side of the teacher they will appricate you more. I think Paul Knox is a great school for anyone to attend.
