Excellent principal! Love Mr. Dykes! He is here for the right reasons and makes a HUGE difference at the Jr High. Several of my kids have gone through this school and he has been the BEST principal by far!
PROS: -Small town, you get to know your child's teachers pretty well -Safe town, safe school; illegal activities are not tolerated -Teachers respond to emails, calls, and visits -Close community feeling, and staff/parent involvement -Dual credit, AP, and other challenging classes available CONS: -moved to high school while jr high is gutted and upgraded - limited choices in classes -school hours (8:30-4:20) and bell doesn't always ring on time -low organization function (people don't know what's going on) Suggested Improvements: -band/athletics should release kids on time (not 15/20 minutes later) -better organization (upload information on website in timely manner, so parents and kids know what is going on) -have separate PTA for each school, not one for all of them and get parents more involved and interested in their children's education
