  • This was the worst school my children ever attended. When I moved to another state the I was told my children were 2 years behind the state curriculum. The administration to include teachers were pulled from the bottom of the barrel and should consider peanut or cotton farming as a new career choice. Test scores and reports of student profiency are a bit inflated. I fell bad for homeowners that are atttempting to sell their house in Ozark. No one wants to send their children to Ozark scools unless they are new to the area and either don't know any better or have no choice.If you don't beleive me, just take a look inside and ask around.

  • Not the best school I've been to, which is saying a lot since I move every year. I'd recommend the school to people who have tolerance of the issues the school has and can deal with the more busy schedule that has you running all over the place. Otherwise, it's not a good school for those of us who'd rather have at least most of their classes on the SAME hallway instead of on different ends of the school and underground and above ground.
