This school district is very closed. If you aren't from the area or someone's buddy or you don't come from what they consider a "family"(single parents be wary), you will not fit in here. I know this seems blunt but having dealt with this district for over 7 years(and can't afford private), I've seen their treatment of these students over and over. They disregard the students that aren't in the groups above even if they are good students and try to get involved. I've experienced this treatment firsthand and I've seen the affect it has on the kids. I wouldn't recommend this district to anyone. There are much better choices, watch the school district lines closely.

I went to this school as well as my parents. But it is nothing like that today. Parents are not heard vs. the teachers. I hate to be negative but my experience with my son has been ridiculous. I hope it improves within 2 years or my youngest will not attend.
