    "It's a very nice facility. Unfortunately, that's the only positive thing I can say about this school. The administration is not doing their best to help teachers or the students. When they don't do their jobs, then the teachers are negatively affected. We all know what this does to students. So, it's a domino effect. The lack of communication, lack of organization, LACK OF DISCIPLINE, etc. exists throughout this two-school district. They seem to be more focused on making the school APPEAR to be good to the state (for funding purposes), rather than actually making the school better. This school is too focused on ISAT scores. Instead, they should focus on the various student products coming directly from the classroom. ISAT is not the only tool to measure student growth and knowledge. Teachers can do a fine job and students may know the material, but just don't test very well. Not to mention, the district is VERY small, so a shift of a hand full of students can yield a large improvement; especially if the school is moving more students with IEPs out of taking the ISAT and into the much easier IAA. I think this is truly the case. Very disappointed in this school."

    "This school has shown much improvment in the past three year. My child is in a new facility and I feel that learning is taking place. Teachers are work with parents to help increase school test scores."

    "This school is lacking the tools our children need to learn to advance successfully beyond middle school. They do not offer programs for the overachieving child either. My daughter is a straight A student,we recently moved here from the south, she is bored to death and now hates going to school because the work is remedial to her. They are not offering her any work to challenge her. There arent any other schools in the district to transfer her to so shes stuck. More than half of her classmates cannot read,how did they get to seventh grade without being able to read? My daughters growth and learning experience is being stunted at this school. If you dont have the money to pay for private school dont move into this district!"
