We are a very small district yet year after year we turn out some of the smartest kids and are still able to get the class sizes small so the kids get more 1 to 1 thrive with little or no extras as the budgets keep getting cut yet our kids still manage to beat the odds.

This junior high is awesome! Very helpful and caring with their students. When a student is struggling they are on top of it to find out the problem and get it resolved!!

I have a daughter in this school and feel that she is not getting the education she deserves. Detentions are common and the majority of the teachers and faculty have no compassion for the children. Also, for a school rich in tax dollars alot of financial help is still required from the parents.

I am a parent of a student that attends this school. I feel as if this school is cheating my children out of an education.
