School Reviews

  • Recommended July 09, 2007 - While this school has a great art class and library, this school lacks focus on the students. Kids are often passed over and not made to achieve success in school. I feel that it cannot meet it's educational responsiblities due to lack of funding. My son attended here and was never given a single book for any class. They had about 30 class books per room that was shared among all the students, this prevents kids from taking the books home to study. I could not help my student study due to lack of study materials. I think this could be a great school with support from the community. - 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.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
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.
