I would rate the school overall very good, it is a safe school and the Vice Principle seems to really care. From what I have seen the Principle is never there, I have called requesting to talk to her 5 different times this school year. Every time she has been out for the day and has never returned a single call. The teachers are very lazy, all they want to do is assign detention. Ask them for help for study and providing a lesson plan and the answer is they don't have the time. On the good side my child loves the school and his friends, on a social level it is a 10. My child wants to stay here for the rest of their education and getting a kid to like school is more than half of the battle.
Never in my life have I witnessed a school more concerned with dress code than education. The teachers are lazy. They send home the lesson plan for the parent to teach it so they can test later. My children have learned absolutely nothing that I haven't taught them. The K-12 environment is a joke. The older children pick on the youngsters on the bus while the administration staff blatantly ignore the complaints of the parents. The elementary teachers brow beat students who have a hard time mastering the lesson plan rather than fostering education. I have never been so sickened in my life. The vile creatures masquarading as educators are a prime example of what federalized education does to a small community school. When I moved here I thought Little House on the Prairie but what we got was Dangerous Minds without Michelle Pfeifer.
I love the small school environment. The principal and the teachers seem very devoted to the children and in making sure they get the attention they need. I am very pleased with the amount of parental involvement they encourage too. This is a fabulous school!
Love this school. My children are very happy here, and I believe much safer.
The principle keeps the parents informed with newsletters and is present at every school function I have been to. She is very involved with the children. The entire staff always make visitors feel welcome and great you with a smile or greeting. Many great me by name even though I have only meet them once. Several teachers stay late to help tutor students, even students not in their class. Keep up the great work!
The teachers of this school are very dedicated and most of them seem to really care about the kids and what they learn. I would say the only negative thing about this school lies in the weak leadership.
I think the school's principle is very much involed and the school is a very good school. I'm glad my kids go there.
This school needs a new princepal. Because has nothing to do with the children. And she is trying to make up rules to the dress that no other maury co.schools has.
