School Reviews

  • Recommended October 31, 2011 - my children have grown up in this school district and are all now in high school. There are bad apples in every bunch,but weve had no problems with bullying drugs etc. Our children are athletes as well as students. Keep your children focused on there futures and you dont have to worry about them overcoming some of the things thrown in there way. Remember no ones high school was perfect.

  • Recommended May 24, 2010 - School is infested with drugs, school administration acknowledges the problem but does nothing to remedy, stating there is no funding resources available. Kids try to sell and push drugs at school and the administration says absolutly nothing to the offending students. Their solution is to call the County sherrif.. the sherrif will not respond to the call due to the lack of available officers. So NOTHING is done. This problem is rampent in both Jr. high schools as well as the high school. Teachers are often not supervising in the classrooms, halls, or lunch rooms. Poverty, drug abuse,bullying, theft, teen pregnancy, and high school drop-outs are extremly prevailient. Parental involvment in the schools is non-exsistant. Inner-city schools have better supervision and safety for their students than this one.. which is in a rural area with low student-teacher ratio's... - 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.
