Copper Basin High School
Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

Some teachers are excellent, I'm thinking particularly of the Spanish teacher, while others are unable to help individuals because of attitude or large class size'

No, they don't. They seem to go out of their way to encourage students to drop out. It's very sad when a principal expells a low achieving students and tells them they're just taking up space rather than meeting with parents and teachers to set up a plan to help student perform better. They make no attempt to find out if perhaps problems at home are contributing to student's learning difficulties

A long history of bullying has been ignored by both teachers and administration. This has led to two suicides within three months. The administration also shows disrespect towards the students, by belittling select students

the administration does not teach this by example. They fail on all points, to show strong leadership and a fair environment.

Current principal and vice principal are completely un-equipped to handle their job. They seem to have no clue how to lead. Two suicides in the last few months of the previous school year...both caused by bullying. This happened in a school with only 350 students. Both have been guilty of bullying, and did nothing to stop student bullying after being told about it on several occasions. Sports are their only interest. Drop-out rate is terrible, GPAs are pathetic, math and english proficiency-40%. The school board also needs shaking up. They have ignored complaints regarding current administration, even with lawsuits being filed. Something the taxpayers will have to cover. Really sad. This is a low income area, and the children are not being prepared for the future. They just continue with previous generation behavior--teenage pregnancies, drug/alcohol abuse. unemployment, one parent households...

My children went to CBHS and all 3 of them have turned out fine with good grades and good community support they received! The kids were in lots of activities and have become well rounded young adults! I am from this area and we locals know our children do not get the advanced college courses that city and larger schools do! If you sek these things then please move to place that the school system provides what you want! If you want more 1 on 1 with teachers and students then stick to Basin!

This school is so dramatic that its not even funny the principal -JARED BIGHAM- and the unneccesary assistant principal- PAT SMITH- are both ignorant pains in the neck. They start drama with a select few students. they dont allow children to call home when they are sick, they dont allow children to be tardy to classes and if they are than they get in school. The cell phone policy is a bunch of bull. As far as My self and My teen is concerned this school deserves to be shut down. It is repulsive

small town school, does has benefits but if you are looking for big town opportunities, don't come here. I like the community and the school, that's why I choose to live here.

This school is not financially capable to tend to students needs who are smarter than there grade level. There is not program in which students can take ap classes, and there is not a program in which the students can take college courses off campus and get high school credit for it also.
