This is the worst school I have dealt with ee just moved here and I really am thinking of homeschooling
We are so disappointed in how Onaga has slid downhill in academic focus and social climate. Our daughter's best friend was bullied so horribly by a staff member's daughter that she had to attend another school - and her mother worked at the school! The principal completely sided with the staff member even with strong evidence of the bullying time and time again. And now we hear that the PTA president is using funds for her own personal use - the same one whose daughter is a terror at the school. She brags all over the softball fields how she can do whatever she wants and constantly trash talks about all of the staff. We have supported many fundraising efforts yet see nothing being done for the teachers or students with those funds as teachers are constantly trying to raise their own funds for class materials and field trips. Does the school district not notice the fact that test scores have drastically dropped since the new principal took over and people are taking their children out to attend other schools or homeschool them? This community should be concerned that the school board supports such a person who allows and encourages this despicable behavior.
I have had 3 of my children attend this school from K-6th. My biggest complaint is how extremely rude the two front office women are... I've dealt with a couple bad teachers but have had more good than bad. I have a two year old now and will do everything in my power to have him attend a different school.
My daughter started first grade here when we had to move to yucca. At her old school she was a few pts away from advance, she had many friends and loved going to school. As time went on my daughter started drastically changing she was picking up extremely bad behavior from other students and she was getting bullied. My bright happy social girl became almost opposite she even got to the point where they were threatening to hold her back a grade. I finally had to take her out and homeschool her this place does not stay on top of their things I notified them I took my daughter out yet I still git calls everyday saying she was not at school and even had the principal and cop come to my house as if I was keeping my child out of school. Plus their classes are extremely crowded. The bus alone was terrible the kids get picked on and not much is done about it.. Sad to say they really changed my daughter and not for the best! If you don't mind the over crowd of the classrooms and the full of children that are bad influences than enroll here.
