I don't know who posted the comment on August 23, 2006, but when I first moved to this school district, I got mediocre grades and thought the same thing until I actually started trying. Also, I don't know who posted the comment about the band teacher, but I never had that problem with any teachers nor ...  Read more

This school has it all - academic programs tailored to each student's level, a caring and involved staff, and many extracurricular programs to keep your pre-teen/teen positively involved.

All 4 of my kids went to this school, then on to OHS. The teachers here are fantastic. It isn't easy dealing with pre-teens/teens - I think this is the hardest age for everyone. But there are many activities for the kids to get involved in and the teachers, administrators, and (most) parents are very ...  Read more

Traughber has been outstanding academically and socially for my 3 kids. The curriculum is challenging; there are many opportunities for outside activities, be it sports or clubs, and the staff and student population is very caring. The new school bldg is beautiful. 3 of my kids have been in Traughber's ...  Read more

My child has been in band for 3 years with this band instructor. She makes learning fun. Her methods aren't always the most conventional, but she is always professional. I went on 2 field trips this year with the 8th grade band, including one that was overnight. She is highly respected as are the bands ...  Read more

Do you really believe the band teacher is outstanding? A teacher who swears, screams and walks out of class because she is having a tantrum does not get an outstanding mark in my book! She degrades the students with negative, biting sarcasm, has thrown her shoe and a rubber chicken at students, but ...  Read more
