  • My name is (...) im fifteen. I am the daughter of (...), the daughter of my grandfather, (...) the former mayor of Pamona. And this school was named after him. And its sad to hear and see that a school that is dedicated to my grandfather
    is not doing so well. my grandfather is not like this at all, he is a good man and wouldn't have wanted it to be this way. It is just very sad to me that this school is the way that it is and my grandfather cant do anything about it. If he were were still here with us he would make the changes that needed to be changed.

  • The School has great teachers. The students are under GREAT pressure to perform well in district tests and punished if they don't do well. Rules are more strict than needed and encourages rebellion. Students are now told they must have hair up, shoes with laces, blue jackets and may not use mechanical pencels. The may only play in their assigned area of the play ground. Library is closed frequently to those that don't need tutoring assistance. No celebrations are allowed and must wear uniform to open house as well. Opportunities for students to learn how to make choices is lacking. This is our 2nd year and this school and do not plan on returning next year, will return to the school in our home area.

  • i think it is really good that has to do with the learning but the kids don't have to much freedom and have to where uniforms every day.
