The school has great teachers wonderful academics but the building itself is in need of a major renovation the building was built in 1922 and has no air conditioning. The exterior of the building is gorgeous but the inside is dull depressing and poorly maintained in some areas. Structurally the school seems fine most of the cracks appear to be from age. The school has an amazing literacy department with some of the sweetest women you will ever meet and one was the T.O.Y. (teacher of the year) in Iowa! The school is full of friendly children fantastic teachers and a growing changing community

Very smug community. If the teachers and principals aren't blood related than they are married ! If you don't have the name or the money you are not in the game. Out in the middle of nowhere and they get away with alot!!!
The principal of this school is very immature if you disagree with her she will refuse to speak or acknowledge you as if she were still a high school girl. If an adult has not seen the bullying she will not address the concern. She gossips about students and parents to teachers and others. She allows some of her staff (the bad ones) to bully the students. She truly is the meaning of a gang leader how can american schools stop the bullying and suicides with adults like this incharge?
This school is so suporitive to me because I am one of the B.D kids. Mrs.Pino & Mrs. Tidwell are the ones that help me every day. They help me have a good day and the help me keep my grads up Thank you all
