School Reviews

  • Recommended June 01, 2012 - great orchestra, we need more players. but its way too strict, and the dean for middle school is unstable.the dress code is ridiculous, and they should really have cooking classes and other fun classes that STUDENTS would enjoy. And school DOESN''T have too be boring,since were one of the best schools in the nation how about having a little bit of a reward for our achievements! - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended September 06, 2010 - This school is not the school to send you rchild to if your child want to getinto and after school activity. They have not way to bus the kids home, so unless you are a stay home mom or dad and can make your own hours. The office staff is also very rude and not very helpful. - Posted by Parent

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.

Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
