    I don't know why everyone is complaining about this school. So far it's been great. I was hesitant to send my daughter here after reading all of the comments on here but am glad I did. My daughter's teachers are very involved she has made improvements and has grown academically since going there and she actually doesn't complain about going to school anymore. As far as the parents who were complaining if your child/children followed the rules they wouldn't get in trouble. Rules are there for a reason and if they are broken there are punishments. Please teach your children this so that in the future they can remain out of jail. Educational institutions are here to teach these things to our children and it is their job to teach them to follow rules. If you don't like it; homeschool them. The only downfall to this school that I have seen so far is the lack of communication. Events happen that I sometimes don't know about until after the fact and/or until the night before. Communication isn't as good as it should be. Anyone answering the phones should be more informed as to what is going on in the school as far as programs.

    I would be interested to know how many other parents out there are being told one thing from the principal of this school vs what their kids are stating?!? My daughter explained to me that she was talked to in a very degrading way by the principal when she got handed her suspension and now possible expulsion. Any other problems with this principal I would love to know immediately as I am trying to gather a report of reviews on her and the entire school staff. Thank you.

    this school is the worst school my childs ever went too. the teachers like to get kids in trouble for the fun of it and they give kids detention for the stupid reason like going to a different bath room.also the whole school is prejudice.

    The new principal lacks leadership. The teachers are lazy. The kids grade each other's assignments and tests. Communication is really poor. Teachers do not get back with you in a timely manner. My other two kids may not go there unless the leadership changes

    This building is only 3 years old and it is filthy! The principal has only been there for 3 years and is retiring! She is not very nice and very overweight. She seems to be encouraging the students to follow the same path. My child thought he had excellent teachers until the princial (Mrs.Banks) fired them and rehired really bad teachers.

    Overly Strict! The principal has been working for 3 years there and decided she wanted to fire really good teachers (My child really improved with his teachers) and replace them with bad ones! Also the whole building is filthy in the inside. I am really disappointed in how our tax money got used.

    We unfortunately had a bad experience at Waggoner (first year) the teachers were not really interested in the academic success of our child and were not very communicative regarding his performance until it was too late to do anything about it. Don't expect much when you drop your child off in the morning.

    This is one of the best school that I have ever been to. The teachers seem to go above and beyond to create lessons that help children. They are really looking at what students understand and providing tutoring for students who need extra help. Several teachers put in extra time to help students and make phone calls and emails to go the extra mile.

    This school may look nice on the outside....but thats about as far as it goes. The principal is just about one of the worst I have ever come across in my life. She does not seem to care about the children. Most of the teachers are good but you do have a few who are following in the principals footsteps. Not a school I will send any of my other children to.

    Overly strict to students. There is no middle ground.
