School Reviews

  • Recommended November 15, 2012 - I have every intention on moving my kids out of this school district by the time they hit middle school. There is such a major communication break down at this school it''s ridiculous and you can''t ever get straight answers out of anyone. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended August 17, 2011 - Never had so many problems with a school in my life. No one knows what is going on and they pass the buck to the next person with no real answers for parents. - 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.
