School Reviews

  • Recommended June 03, 2014 - If the student challenges himself to strive for upper level classes (i.e., chem and physics, pre-calc/calc/, Honors English/Social Studies) he can get an education equal to any of the finest schools in the nation. That is the best thing about Stebbins, the education is there for the taking and they can start, ahead, of the pack at WSU or UD. They also have an online program for students who may need to finish in a non-traditional setting, with an equally challenging curriculum, for recovery and initial classes. That is something that most schools in the area don't offer...you have to go to an ECOT or a K-12... - Posted by Teacher

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
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.
