    Very disappointing experience for children. Poor quality teachers with few exceptions - the best ones tend to leave. Parental involvement is strongly discouraged. No homework given by many teachers - parents do not receive completed work they keep it for their own personal records. Significant behavioral problems in the classroom kids getting hurt by out of control children with no boundaries. They tend to put all special ed kids in one class and fill in with regular students.causing that particular classroom to be constantly out of control while other kids in the same grade but different classroom get educated. Principal is very difficukt to deal with plays games and focuses on the appearance not substance. Terrible gossips all around. Many people who teach there also have kids in the district won't speak up to the principal out of fear. School counselor pulls kids out of class to create or search for problems where they do not exist. Never has her facts straight before pursuing students. The worst educational experience and kid could have. If you get stuck in this district consider home schooling. No resentment here these are facts you need to be aware of.

    There are but only a few REALLY great teachers in this School. If you can afford to put your child in a private school!
