Marais Des Cygnes Valley Unified School District Reviews

I've only gone to this school for one year. In that one year I have noticed, a lot of kids are getting bullied. A lot of people threatening the school, the teachers are not that good. Plus they lose our assignments. All the classes are really easy.

Well bring from a small town of approximately 300 people total you already feel as if you are lacking something and won’t ever get anywhere. Then due to many changes in our administration throughout the last two years we lost many great teachers. Math is the only class I learn anything in. Our teacher was once the principal but when we needed him because no one else could fill the position he stepped in. There’s many things wrong with our school and I feel like I’m morn being given a real education.
I really enjoyed the teachers and the support they have given us. I like the fact that it is a small school but the one thing I would change is for more students to enroll there over the next few years so MdCV doesn't shut down.
