Past student from years ago but it sounds like things have not changed much. If I had to choose between placing my child in this school or quitting my job and homeschooling I would choose homeschooling hands down. This school was a huge detriment to my future and I witnessed things there I should never have seen as a child.

This being a small school does not get the resources that I would like to see my child entitled to. As a low performing school there should be more resources to help the teachers be successful. Administration lacks a lot to be desired. It is time for change in this building. The environment is not the safest for students. There is lack of parental involvement. I would not recommend my friends to sent their children there until someone cleans house. It does have potential! Low performing teachers are allowed to stay there and not make a positive impact on our children. Until then they will continue to struggle.
