    "Our schools here in Othello are not up to standard and it's sad that every year we all receive the Othello school district "VISION" report and see that we are NOT making adequate yearly progress, but we sit back and accept this?? Why?? doesn't anyone care about making a change around here?? WOW"

    "Scootney Springs is a great school with a dedicated staff, well disciplined students and high test scores compared to schools with similar demographics. Scootney made AYP this year!"

    "I am very disappointed with this school. Their attempts to incorporate the HiCaps class for these students was a good thought but the same students stay in the group each year, and are rarely challenged beyond just introducing harder text. The leadership needs a drastic change."

    "We have lost excellent teachers and i fear we will be loosing more very soon. The no child left behind law 'is' leaving a lot of children behind. This law needs to be eliminated. In our area it is the white kids who are being left behind because no one wants to 'offend' someone else. My hispanic friends even complain about this. And the school lunches are absolutely discusseding. Everything is pre-prossecced/deep fryed. Unhealthy."

    "Scootney Springs is trying. We are the top-rated school in our district of 3 elementary schools, however, we are struggling. We have a very high Hispanic population, instead of embracing this culture and using this to our advantage, we seem to always be one step behind, playing catch-up. Spanish is not integrated into our curriculum until Jr High OR High School, we have eliminated ALL honors classes in Jr. High, we have one advance placement college class in high school. We 'teach to the WASL' with the emphasis being on math and reading. We do not have art, science, history, social studies, or keyboarding/computer skills on a regular basis on the elementary levels. Our teachers want to teach, but are not allowed outside of the strict curriculum. One factor, is the grants that we have locked ourselves into and the lack of parent volunteerism school-wide."
