School Reviews

This school's focus is on sports and people who's family have lived in this area for many years. New students or students who are different are not a priority here. I moved here a couple years ago and have received negative attitudes from students along with teachers and administrators. The teachers curriculum does not challenge me either. The books their english class requires them to read for junior and senior years are books I read in my freshman and sophmore years at previous schools. I would not let my child go to Sandy Creek.
