  • Recommended June 01, 2012 - i am a grandparent and i care for my grandchildren in this year all will be in school full time and i am looking to do volunteer work of any kind and wanted to inquire if the school had a need for volunteers for whatever is needed - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 25, 2011 - Very poor educational system. The elementary, middle, and high school teacher do not like to see success in their students. Also, they try to do anything to mess with the child's family life. Terrible schools. Not suggested. - Posted by Student/Alumni

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

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.
