  • 1 - Principal Leadership and Staff.
    Shannon Bucknell is excellent! Sean Baylor is not good at all! Some of the staff are so bad, its disgraceful.

    2 - Overall Ranking and Student Achievement.
    My overall ranking would have to be only 2.5/5 because, theres no ABSOLUTE way to explain it but its just not a good school. Theres so many things wrong. And the student acievement, well, it depends on what teacher you have. Some, you will learn a lot others, not so much because you wont function.

    3 - Teacher involvement and Guidance.
    Depends on what teacher you have.

    4 - Extracurricular Activities and Sports.
    Awesome except for the 7th grade Volleyball coach.

    5 - Classroom, Building and Playground Safety.
    pretty good, just the classroom...oh, boy, a lot of things go on in there, NOT GOOD!!

    6 - School Homework Load Appropriatness.
    too much.
