I was horrified at the front desk service. As an alumni, I was not allowed entry into the building to deliver a Christmas card. I understand security precautions, but I was agreeable and flexible with options of how to enter to their satisfaction and was still turned away. That is a very heartless and unappreciative way to treat your past students and I was totally appalled. Can''t say I miss the Middle School at all, because in every aspect of anything you try to do they are like this. I was incredibly disappointed. I had this crazy idea that your original schools are like family. I guess I was wrong. (They do this kind of thing the right way over at the high school). I will never forget this treatment.

I believe you get what you want out of this district if you know someone. For example rules are bent for certain people or the heads are turned if it is an administrators child. But watch it come loose if you are just a regular Joe walking around. Small town politics and one day it will all catch up in a way that will damage the integrity of the school .
