School Reviews

  • Recommended November 11, 2011 - There is is no football or wrestling in this school and there has been people willing to put wrestling and football and archery and have parents take care of it but that school wants nothing to do with it. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended June 13, 2011 - This school is not fair with any of the students one bit. They try to ban the parents involvement in anything that they can. The teacher edwil Baldwin talks down to everyone he speaks to, being parents, students etc. He talks in this deep voice constantly. - 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.

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.
