Since my child has attended this school they have changed the grading system three times. Now they have credit by proficiency which in my opinion only teaches students to pass tests. The students don't learn from this. It is a big disservice to the students. Furthermore this school does not prepare them for college. It also has a tracking systems - athletics vs. non-athletics. Athletes are given preferential treatment and allowed to miss lots more classes than non athletes and take more challenging courses. Their math and english departments are lacking good teachers. The principal however is actually trying to raise standards in the school but if Administration does not support him it is all for naught. I'm not impressed with this school at all. It is geared primarily for athletics not academics. My children have basically lost interest in school since they've been there.

With all the budget cuts there is limited things for us to do. Some of the teachers here do not do their job properly and do not challenge us enough. Plus the choises of classes we are given are very limited and many classes are cut each year. I personaly can't wait to go to college to get out of here.
School is way underfunded lack of teachers and more budget days off. All three schools get out early on wednesdays
As a volunteer in the ASPIRE Program I witness the professional dedication of staff and administrators. My career was in education and I see so many good things. The students like and respect their teachers. I see team work among the staff support staff and administrators. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of the effort to educate our youth and to encourage them to seek additional education and training after high school.
Students are not fully prepared for college classes. Internal issues with administrators teachers and staff affect the entire 'climate' of the school. Not enough parent involvement at any level either academics or athletics. Just a handful of parents are involved.
Being new to this school district I have found school to parent communication is limited and must be sought out by the parent. Parent and community involvement appears limited at the academic level but seems strong in the athletics.
