The bullying and click issue unfortunately is left so far unchecked in the lower grades the teachers actually validate it. One teacher said "good job! to my son hey everyone make sure you give him a high five in hallway and say thanks for ruining the project for everyone!. (this was a cynical incitement to bullying by a teacher). Kids would constantly verbally abuse and hit other kids and my sons teacher was so out of it she was confused about which child she was talking about at the teacher conference we had to keep going wait thats not my sons when whe tried to show us a project?? The elementary and middle school are disasters but I have heard from many the the high school tries hard to pull it back out of the toilet. By the way they have one guidance counselor for the entire district k-12. My children no longer go that fredericktown schools.

I would agree with the parent from 2004 regarding sports but I also feel that most all schools today are way too focused on sports. It is probably no different in colleges. However I do agree that this school has a serious bullying problem that is not being addressed properly. My son is the subject of this bullying and has been all school year. At one point one of his teachers was even involved!! Now as we have given him advice to solve these problems they subside and reappear but frankly I am FED UP with the unprofessional nature these teachers at this school are giving our kids! Now it is not all teachers but it seems like more and more at the upper levels this is the case. For a second year in a row I am seriously considering home schooling or switching schools altogether.
Wow.......What a review . My kids are not in sports and they do not bully or have not been bullied other than your average picked on . The parent that has posted there review in 2004 seems very unhappy and maybe they should have taken it to the school board. I do like Fredericktown Schools and yes they do like there sports But this is still a great learning school read the state reviews.
This school is concerned too much about sports and athletic activities that they forget about what should be their first priority- an education. The community is not an environment that cares about kids and their safety. Countless levies that have not been passed reflect on the $400 000+ budget cut for the 04-05 school year. The intermediate building is in poor condition and should be declared a disaster. Girls in the intermediate building have no locks on bathroom doors. The word 'sanitary' does not exist in this school. Fredericktown also has a very big problem with bullies and gangs. I would not consider this school to anyone that might want to transfer.
