Teachers are very modern and hard working. If you are behaving, you will NEVER have to deal with a mean teachers. The academics are pretty well thought. In fact, sometimes we get ahead of even other high school students. But the teacher still makes it understandable. There are many clubs and electives for people who want to do something outside of the academics. Culinary arts, dance, chorus, band, even raising farm animals. They cover almost everything. Schools are very secure with police officers who are approachable and make sure your safe. But at the same time its no prison. The only problem I see are the students who are a little too "rebellious" but that's not really the fault of the schools. 4/5!

I think that the schools should be redone. I feel that the teachers are very unhelpful. I've heard that the schoolshas struggled with turnover, lack of leadership, weakness of character and disengagement with their students in the past. During this current 2018-2019 school year, the teachers and administrators that took over for the previous administration have shown they are committed to my student and others. I can tell that it has been a difficult transition but I've noticed improvement in the school's attitude and effectiveness. We're excited to watch our kiddo GROW from kinder through 5th and beyond.
I love the school spirit at my school, it’s amazing ! Also, the after school activities that go on, like football games, soccer games, etc. Their are also many clubs here, to a bee club, to a German club, it’s very cool! You can even make your own club, with a sponsor of course. What I would like to see change here is more of a student involvement in other less popular sports .
