School Reviews

  • Recommended November 11, 2011 - 1.there aren't many counselors that are able to help students through the school year. 2.most of the students are very rude and disrespectful to the teachers and the few students that actually pay attention in class suffer for it. 3.the school spends more money on prom and football than they do on textbooks and school computers. 4.the students don't get a heck of a lot of choices as to what classes that they want to take. And the ones that are classified as required classes are exceptionally bad. 5.some teachers will talk to students as if they were talking to an elementary school student. In summation, worst school that I have been to for my last year. And I am so glad that it was only one year and not the entire 4. - 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.
