    This is the worst high school I have ever worked. The students are disrespectful rude and refuse to do work. They walk around with their head phones walk into class at any time they want with no consequences. If you ever decide to teach here I would not work here if I was desperate for a job. I lasted two days and that was enough. The worst experience of teaching in my whole career. On the good note a couple teachers were helpful and the principle is very nice and helpful but overall extremely disorganized and the students are horrible!!!!!!!!!!

    My daughter goes to school at Inlet Grove High School and I know it is a great school. She has gotten use to the rules and I really appreciate the rules that are in place. When you have rules and they are followed learning certainly takes place. For those who think the school focus on rules Please ask yourself this question 'if no rules or policies were in place what condition this world would be in?' There are many good things about Inlet Grove. The school is a family school were parent are involved in their child's education. The number one goal is for child safety and student achievement. Inlet Grove has a waiting list of students who want to come to their school.

    As a student teacher at Desert View I am very impressed with the administration the teachers and the students. A remarkable number of advanced and honors courses are offered as well as a large amount of remedial time for students not passing the AIMS test.
