I am a parent who also went to school there. I thought that the academic programs was ok until I move my children to a different school and they were behind in their work compared to Paint Rock Valley. Sports was ok. I had no problems with sports. The parent involvement was a problem, if the teacher didn't like you then you wasn't asked to be involved in anything that was going on at school. I saw alot of teacher play favorites for along time. I am glad that I have move my children to a new school, now they are getting a better education and my oldest has already been pretested for nursing and scored the highest out of her whole class. Please do all of you reseach before you deside to enroll you child, it could mean their education..
