my children have grown up in this school district and are all now in high school. There are bad apples in every bunch,but weve had no problems with bullying drugs etc. Our children are athletes as well as students. Keep your children focused on there futures and you dont have to worry about them overcoming some of the things thrown in there way. Remember no ones high school was perfect. Go Patriots

School is infested with drugs, school administration acknowledges the problem but does nothing to remedy, stating there is no funding resources available. Kids try to sell and push drugs at school and the administration says absolutly nothing to the offending students. Their solution is to call the County sherrif.. the sherrif will not respond to the call due to the lack of available officers. So NOTHING is done. This problem is rampent in both Jr. high schools as well as the high school. Teachers are often not supervising in the classrooms, halls, or lunch rooms. Poverty, drug abuse,bullying, theft, teen pregnancy, and high school drop-outs are extremly prevailient. Parental involvment in the schools is non-exsistant. Inner-city schools have better supervision and safety for their students than this one.. which is in a rural area with low student-teacher ratio's...
