  • Reviewed by Parent or Guardian on April 07, 2011
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Overall I would give this school a rating of low due to the aggravating way the school has of NOT communicating with the parents except in a very vague fashion. Problems are dismissed out of hand and if the child is struggling in certain subjects, nothing is said to the parents until it is too late. The teaching staff is mediocre, assignments are routinely not sent home either in homework or make up, tests not given after the completion of assignments, class assignments are sub-par, teaching is based on the ability of non-english speakers and classes are taught at that level to the detriment of those who can do the work and excel at it and communication with the parents stink. I would not recommend this school to any parent and say avoid it like the plague if you can. We, unfortunately can not. All the other area schools are full in this rural community. The first chance I get to get out of here.I'm gone. I'll go back to Walden Lake Elementary with my child. At least that school is ranked 3rd in the state.
