I attended this school for 4th and 5th grade. I have had 2 children attend here and have 2 still there now.The teachers are nice to a fault it seems. If there is a problem, protocol is to talk to the teacher first but that ends up in a he said/she said because the teacher will be defensive for questioning her actions in any way. If you go over her head to the VP, you become a bothersome problem that will end up siding with the teachers' just for the sake of not having awkwardness while facing each other in the halls. No one wants to out each other. And you will end up looking like an angry parent that will ultimately bond the VP and Principal on the teachers' side. The teacher "acts" upset over the "attacking" parent. VP and Principal come to rescue her. Nothing gets resolved because it is handled curtly and summed to "miscommunication". No protocol given if occurs again. In the end, YOU, the parent are just overreacting and irrational and annoying to them. They give new teachers a try. One teacher was delinquent and dressed like a goth teen, always late and brought her dopehead boyfriend to parties. When let go,had to split her kids to 3 classes. They were behind and many failed.

Ok I went to Cimarron.I am now fifty years old.I had three children to go there.They are now graduated from NSSH.I now have a 6 yr old now attending 1st grade.The school has always had high quality in everything.Parents involvement has slacked off a bit do to a higher demand for both parents to work to make ends meet.OK thats all. Thanks.
