The school is so far behind in their teaching standards that kids leaving here and heading off to college are in for a big surprise. It will be way too hard for them. They are good with extracurricular activities, but not in studies. Not real great in letting parents be part of the festivities & School functions. They are good with athletic awards as well as academic, but they could be ranked higher if they would actually get some teachers to teach. Most of the teachers who have been there a while are good and should remain, but Some of the newer teachers neede direction. They are not experienced enough and my kids come home from school and show me their work, What a joke. Thank you.
