School Reviews

  • Recommended January 28, 2012 - yes i would recommended my school its a great school and they take yo step by step though school and homework and thay go above and beyond the standrd of teaching too. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended February 01, 2010 - I am VERY disappointed at the lack of girls sports at the middle and high school level. More money is spent on the boys athletic clubs. They have already outgrown the high school that was built just several years ago. Only two gyms.....really? Academics are slipping, class sizes are 28 in primary and intermediate schools! Just a few years ago it was only 22-25! Too many boundary exceptions and people using "relatives" addresses so they can attend Hockinson. I wish there would be less boundary exceptions. Those of us who pay property taxes here deserve for our children to get the best education possible and others can go in the district they live in! - 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.
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.
