    I have two children here in 1st and 2nd have been going since KG. Very Very surprised on how well the teaching Curriculum is both were reading before leaving KG! Good teachers and any problems I have ever had to do with the school or the school bus I have gotten help from Mr. Johnson(the principal) and he has resolved it. As for the post below one of my kids has an issue with being over hyper who also was sent to get paddlings a lot his KG year after medicating (my choice) he is doing so much better never in trouble anymore. Medicating is needed in some situations regardless of age he was 5 as well and its worked wonders with us and his teacher.

    This school has been aweful to my 5 year old! She is a bit hyper she's 5! The first two weeks of school someone cut her hair! The school didn't call me! Since then she has been tripped in the lunchroom at least weekly! The cafeteria has k-4 and 9-12 in there all at the same time. The teacher continuously wants to paddle my child so she ran from the teacher one day and the assistant principle came and took her to the office and was gonna do I don't know what with her and she ran from her! Clearly there's a reason she's scared! The principle tells me I need to medicate my daughter! She's 5! I'm not going to medicate her! Also parents should know that the teachers don't watch the kids while they are at recess. My neighbour found a child from my daughters class running toward hwy 80 crying during school! She had to have the police come and figure out where the kid belonged! The high school and middle school are really no better either! Future warning to parents out there!!!

    This school has been good to my children. I do have one child that has a chronic illness and although they wouldn't allow us to do a 504 plan for her her teachers have been wonderful about recognizing her symptoms and allowing her to finish work when she's better able to concentrate. She's diabetic and her sugars do sometimes get out of control. I can't complain at all about the teachers. I do feel more comfortable training the teachers to take care of her than I feel the school nurse is prepared to take care of her. The school needs a nurse at the high school and elementary at all times (their on the same campus) and have a fulltime nurse at the middle school. This is my biggest drawback that I have. I feel that my children are learning and their needs are being met very well. Need more extracurricular-activities.
