School Reviews

  • Recommended October 11, 2010 - It is very sad that Coach McKeel would say in the Murray paper that Moral victories are for Losers. He evidently doesn't know what a Moral Victory is and obviosly doesn't care. He is the only Loser. - Posted by Student/Alumni

White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
