School Reviews

  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - Patton jr high school is an okay school for 7th through 9th graders ... i would reccomend it over any schools in leavenworth... esp. 4 ninth graders. the quality of academic programs is okay... but i wish it would have longer sports seasons. The availability is so so but thats just because of the current principle ( dr.gill) who happens to have really freaky eye brows). The parent involvement is okay ... many parents come to help out teachers... the school it self how ever i would say is not sooo organized. Students are told of school activies the day they happen and there are no fundraisers due to school neglect. Even though patton has its problems it has many less than other schools in the area - Posted by Student/Alumni
