    I am quite surprised with the low rate this school was given because I have had a wonderful experience with them. My child was behind from the previous teaching establishment he went to and was on the verge of being left back a grade. The principal at Rockport said that he and the staff would work with him... and they did! And they did a great job; he loves school and is at the top of his class. His teacher is always challenging him to think and he has never complained but bragged about what he has learned. Plus the school has an online service that lets me see everything my son does in school usually before he brings the paperwork back home. And in one phrase to describe his teacher - "heaven sent".

    My son is enrolled here and I have no clue as to what is going on! Supposedly the school is helping him I have yet to see it! I live in Dubois County and I feel he should go to school here. I could not even get the principal to return a phone call much less get a copy of his report card sent to my home after I Told the school to send me one!

    I don't even give it one star. Subjects are really far behind here look at past ISTEP scores and you will see that. Also a lot of kids in this school either don't care or their parents don't care and when kids constantly disrupt class how can the smart kids actually move ahead? The disruptive ones keep everyone else from moving forward! Discipline is severely lacking at this school!
