The most unprofessional staff I have ever had to deal with. What a nasty little school and school district. From the school board all the way down to first grade. Do not expect your children to get an education. You MUST stay on top of it. From the principal to the teacher they do not want to see parents (they are professionals) who know what they are doing and frankly will tell you it is none of your business. Avoid at all cost.
It's real easy for a teacher to get on here and blame the incompance of teachers on the lack of parental support. The truth, however, is this is one of the worst schools I have ever regretfully had my children attend and I am ecstatic about pulling them out and sending them to a much better district. There is no structure, incompetent and untrained as well as unskilled teaching staff, contribution to bad behavior from students do to lack of moral, professional behavior from staff, poor communication skills, limited teaching materials, and the list goes on. I have met few teachers in this district who honestly care about the education of their students. Instead of making improvement though, they would prefer to come to this sight and point blame at parents like a child playing the blame game. If you live in this district you would probably get farther with your child's education of you homeschooled them.
This rating is absolutely meaningless. You might have a few disgruntled parents, but those usually are parents who aren't involved in their children's lives anyhow. They expect the school to be a 'miracle worker' while they contribute nothing to the success of their kids. In fact, some probably couldn't tell you the names of their children's teachers or what grade their children are in. When we have open house at the high school and I have 10 parents show up (and I teach 130 students), that tells you something about parent involvement. So parents, quit complaining unless you can truthfully say you are involved in your kids' lives. You can't blame the teachers for the things you've never taught your children such as respect, follow-through, honoring commitment, and basic manners.
The worst school I've seen. Drug activity, poor teachers, poor leadership. I see no desire for the school wanting to improve. They seem satisfied to be a total failure.
The reason we moved here was because of the school. Less violence, drugs, gang activity, etc.... no metal detecters, smaller class size, more individual attention. We do not regret our desion. Had 3 children attend. High school only.
