I suppose if you conform and are part of the cliques, having lived there your entire life, you will love this district. However, if you do not conform, or are not part of the cliques (parents and kids), then you will not like this community. You are either "in or out". If you are out, they would just assume you leave, than do anything about it. Pretty sad. No diversity. Can't "ruffle the feathers, because the administration and board members all grew up, with all their friends and kids attending the schools. Incestuous is the best way to describe this community. So, the communities attitude is "our Sh... does not smell and we are not going to change, so if you don't like it you can leave". Those that stay, love it...

They do a good job, except when it comes to bullying and drugs / alcohol. They look the other way... don't want to admit this district has issues. Give the students 24 hour "warning" that the drug sniffing dogs are coming to the building. Bullying is an issue. Always has been, always will be as long as they continue with the attitude that "our shi does not smell". Total denial...
Older community, so the buildings are old, but very proficient.
