Reviews for Preston High School

Sorry but I had to open enroll my young jr high children to another nearby district. I don't feel they will get the proper education given the declining enrollment. Even though the merger passed, I still feel the enrollment will continue to decline. The academics have also gone downhill. I have done my homework and looked into other districts and found the one to suit my children. My children are also ridiculed daily because they are not "athletic" enough. This school focuses on sports more than academics so my children next year will be going to a well rounded school that recognizes academics, fine arts, speech and other important items as well as sports.Read Full Review

This school has been working extremely hard to prepare all students for college. They are providing a technology enriched curriculum with updated materials. The staff is focusing on the ICC and reading comprehension. The Olvweus bullying prevention program has been implemented, and basic skills scores are improving nicely.Read Full Review

This school doesn't deal with bullying very well. They let kids pick on other students. The teachers are still teaching in the same manner that they did in the 1970's, not updating their material at all.Read Full Review
