School Reviews

  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - The school has great programs and overall they could be an excellent school, but, they don't seem to enforce some of their own student codes and they don't have a no tolerance policy. There's a lot of fighting and kids that like to instigate fights with other students they feel are inferior. The school building is brand new and the Principle is really nice, when a problem is brought to the school's attention they act on it. I think though if the school would inform the students that a no tolerance policy is in effect on name calling, student sexual harrassment and fighting among other things this school could be top rated. - 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
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.
