My kids go to this school and it always seems that they are always worried about making money instead of getting the proper people and teachers to care for the kids. We have a girls softball coach who seems to thinks it's OK to have the girls play dirty and be unsportsmanlike. We also have the worst office clerk I have ever seen in my life. This older woman seems to hate her job and kids. Very snotty and sarcastic. One time I was there to pick up my kids and I overhear this woman tell a family that was visiting the school for possible enrollment. "oh great more supplies to buy" and "That's not what I asked you!" I felt so bad for the parent that took the abuse. I am transferring my kids this year. There are far better schools near by. Burley or Jahn.
