    Has teachers who shouldn't be teaching...non-caring aloof and petty. No help beyond the bell. Thank goodness Poe is gone but some of the same attitudes still prevail.

    I have to agree. The teachers could do a better job of returning calls & getting the children extra help. There are a few great ones but the majorty of the staff seem to have lost their joy of teaching and just there to collect a check. Our teachers need to make more money and be given breaks so they do not get burned out. I believe that they should make learning fun again.

    Overall this school is Wondeful. It has pep rallies and the support at ball games from the students are wonderful. Grades teachers some of the food classes and everything else is wonderfully great! Mrs. Poe makes her school what it is. A safe educational disciplined enviroment.

    First of all mrs.Poe is the best thing that has happened to this school but unfortunly the teachers are very critical not caring of students who need extra help and they do not return calls from parents concerned about their childrens problems they are having in what ever subject. It is a same that our public school teachers have seem to have given up and stop caring. Our children are the ones to pay the price for their lack of caring.
