My child, a g/t student, cannot get the higher level classes needed to be challenged. Though the teachers we have had have been good and are trying. The principal seems to care only about a select group of students, doesn't listen to the other kids and talks down to parents.

LHS Killough, the name changed, is an incredible school! The Principal, Mrs. Pam Flores is OUTSTANDING! She truly cares for each & every one of her students. She goes above & beyond anything I have ever seen when it comes to her students. She is very fair with the students & they know that & trust her. When it's business time, she's all about getting it done & making sure the students have the right atmosphere to do their very best. When it's time to have fun, she's the first one out there dancing, leading cheers, kissing pigs & so much more. If there is a student in need, she will do everything she can to help. This is an educator that doesn't just talk the talk, she walks the walk! Mrs. Flores changes lives. We have been blessed to watch her change many of those lives. "Good" kids are easy to motivate, but she finds opportunities for them to grow, to challenge them & encourage that want to be the best they can be. The struggling kids, failing classes, skipping & getting in trouble both in & out of school. So many of those students are making A/B Honor Roll, taking Pre-AP classes, coming to school every day & not getting into trouble. She is ALL about the students & it shows.
