2 kids on IEPS one may not graduate on time because the teachers refuse to have a meeting to help her succeed and graduate on time, never has passed the state test.. My other child has been doing the same work since middle school has not been aloud to excel
I have children on IEPS and they get very little help, targeted as a bad kid or labeled. None of my kids have been able to pass the state testing , teachers aren't very good with communicating with the parents or children. Counselors are awful and do not help wither children or parents resolve issues with their child's education. Staff are not friendly and the teacher are just there to collect a paycheck not to actually help the children achieve their goals. Unless your into to sport your kids are not high on the priority list and are over looked.
I really wouldn't want to go anywhere else. The school spirit is terrific, and despite the size, there is still very few instances of bullying and fighting, at least from my viewpoint. Now I am also coming from the perspective of an ASB officer, but I love to go to this school, and it is super easy to get involved. Although I do understand what some of these former comments are referring to when they say if you have not lived here for generations you are not as easily accepted, but this truly is a great community, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
The staff who go beyond educating their students. The location is right in town-in the historical district. Wonderful traditions - serpentine parade and spirit week during homecoming. Strong academic programs, great diversity of clubs, amazing variety of athletics and a community that supports them. And the beautiful BIG TREE where students and parents meet.
