School Reviews

  • Recommended January 24, 2014 - With the amount of people that attend the school, teachers are more available for one on one learning. The teachers genuinely care about the individual students futures and strive to better them. Everyone in the school knows everyone else and has for the most part grown up with the other students in the school since kindergarten. Very welcoming place, almost like a big family, everyone jokes around and tries to have as much fun as allowed. We currently do have a lot of young moms at the school but they are accepted all the same. There surprisingly are not any cliques, all groups interact with each other regularly without problems. Band is not good at all hanging on by a thread. Art program is very good and the choir has a new director. *Current 10th Grader attended since PK* - 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.
