School Reviews

It is common knowledge in Sioux City that this is the worst of all middle and high schools. (unless of course you are a second or third generation Raider) Even the recent change in administration has had little impact on the lack of fair and equitable opportunities for all students. The self-serving attitudes of the administration and most of the faculty and staff has lasting, negative implications for students. Do not consider this school for your children.
