  • The teachers seem to care about the students and will go out of their way to help them. Unfortunately, some students aren't required to behave at home, so they cause trouble at school as well. Those are the ones you hear about---the ones who cause the trouble.

  • Teachers are caring and will go out of their way for students. My son received extra help with his writing long after the teacher could have gone home. We've lived in two other towns and that never happened. It's a poor district, but the teachers are some of the best I've ever seen.

  • this school is dirty it has lots and lots of roaches crawling. The ceilings have been written on. Most desks have gum under them. The rules are so crazy. If u want your child to attend a school i prefer Chesterfeild.
