I have been pleased with my child's teacher's and principal Mrs. Smothers until Mrs. Sheen became the dean. It's as if she is running the school. She has been very unfair with the progressive discipline policy which totally takes away from a positive school culture that this school once had. Sheen seems to RPC students for any reason, not properly investigating and taking the time to get to know the student's other side of the story. An example of this is, Mrs. Sheen sent my child home and RPCed her before the investigation was even made. Students are just labeled as bad or difficult, even students that have had a history of being academically strong and well behaved. My child is academically strong and for the most part is a well behaved. She definitely does not fall into the bad category. My child hates to go to school and does not feel accepted or fairly treated due to a few misunderstandings that have taken place in the classroom where new teachers have not yet mastered their classroom structure. Mrs. Sheen does not foster my child's learning style. This has turned out to be the worst school year for both my child and family.

I didn't want to go to this school, but I kept an open mind about it when I started. I was right to not want to attend here, the staff, all but teachers, were very rude. The rules here are ridiculous, there is a no touch policy, seems okay right, it isn't we aren't allowed to even shake hands, you get detention if you do. This is crazy, hand shakes are something you do when you speak with someone, it shows respect, it's a proper way to introduce yourself, yet if you shook a fellow students hand, you get detention. I personally kept to myself most the time, I'm the type of person who would just sit and watch everything, so I saw all the drama, which there's quite a bit of. I didn't give a 1 star because they handled bullying or threats quickly. You could go and get a sheet to fill out, then turn it in and the isusse would get solved. Most teachers are understanding and care. One of the science teachers for 8th grade was spectacular, he was a bit tough, and seems scary and rude, but he was great, I loved his class it was amazing, I wish I could have him again. There are many clubs that you could join. Overall my time here was bad, if you have a choice, don't go there.

I am a parent and would fully agree with the previous student comments on school administration. Absolutely horrible!
