  • Recommended May 01, 2012 - Needs better food, environment, and more eligibility into cheer leading. - Posted by Administrator
  • Recommended December 21, 2011 - The only thing this school district is good for is academics which I agree need some work cause as a former student myself, this school district is not at all what it used to be. The worst things about this school district, the staff regarding the superintendent, a few principals, vps, and other staff need to get it together or get out. They simply can not do their jobs correctly, mainly the middle school. I have seen teachers and vp's as well as the principals lie to parents regarding their children just to suspend a child for minor things which I have had the experience myself. They also target certain children, and fail to protect children's safety. There have been children who have been bullied, assaulted physically with serious injuries, and a sexual assault in the high school during school hours. Having these officers in the schools is a waste of time as far as I am concerned. Also, they need to do something about the busing issues with the seating, which still continues, I had to deal with that as a student myself with Burlington Township back in 86,87,88, etc. The only thing they did improve was putting cameras on the buses... But overall the school from a rate of 1 to ten gets a 4. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended May 31, 2010 - The academics in my point of view still need some work to be done. Music and art it overall good but they need more sports. Kids should be more involve in social thing. This is school needs to move up a lil more so its a great schoo. - Posted by Parent
