School Reviews

2  
We have been at Schaefer for more than a decade and we have seen the educational standards continually decline. It was once a great school and many of the great teachers are still there but with continual administration changes (new principals all the time) and a board that is frightened of any and all perceivable legal liability, the education standards have dropped dramatically. No P.E., No music, No Librarian, No sports teams, hardly any field trips, No art programs, No science programs. If the teacher has the time and energy to do these things is the only time they will happen. It has been a sad thing to watch happen to this school.
