School Reviews

Parents are NOT encouraged to be involved, nor are they heard. Discipline problems are paramount and frequent, and by this I mean students assaulting the Principle and then running rampant through the building with out any consequences..I was VERY discouraged, so much so, that we are MOVING out of this school's area. Academically this school is average, they fail completely with accelerated reading programs and most core curriculum is behind most other schools of this level. Substitutes are in place of the actual teachers so much that the students fall behind. The food menu leaves a nutritional gap that is embarrassing. YES they ARE technologically advanced...but with the discipline problems and lack of action on the over taxed staffs part (the school board seems to have tied their hands), how much learning is ACTUALLY going on?
