School Reviews

Academics are low. Students receive grades that are not earned. A good percent go to college and leave within the first semester. Parents are afraid to complain due to retribution on their student (Which most BOE people are well aware of and proclaim it doesn't happen) Nice sports program any student that wants to play can. Parents are involved but afraid as are the teacher (THE PRESENT SUPERINTENDENT HAS CUT THEIR JOBS/POSITIONS BECAUSE THEY DO NOT AGREE WITH HIS VIEWS) This superintendent knows someone in NYS Dept of Education. Bolton has NO K-6 special education teacher He cut that position too. NYS Dept of Education WHERE ARE YOU?
