A coupl of office staff people are so rude and need to go work at te DMV instead. First day of school , my kindergartener walked away from me and I couldn’t find her, so I freaked a bit and panicked and walked in the school and told the lady at the front She walked off and I need to go see if she walked to her class room. Panic was all over me and it was easy to see, the lady told me I needed to go ch Co in at the front desk and Had no sense of urg next what so ever and could care less that I was a panicked mom that couldn’t find her child She just kept insisting that I go to the front desk and get a visitors pass , this is the first day of school and every parent was walking in and out of the place. So I went to the front desk and the the lady who clearly knows who I am from the year b fire asked me for my Id. I said I had no ID with me, I didn’t walk my kids to school with my ID and proceeded to tell me I needed my ID while I was panicking just wanting to find my daughter. Then with a snotty sarcastic tone tried to be little me by saying “ you lost your daughter “ Through all her annoying smirks proceeded to tell me that I knew I needed to bring my ID. ( Never once the whole last year of school did I need an ID or was I ever asked for one. I walked in signed the visitor book and went on with my day.) so after again freaking out saying why I’m freaking out she went ahead and helped someone else asking her a question , just flat out ignored me and didn’t care about my daughter or had any regards for my situation. Another incident at the school was I was seeing hot lunch mistakes on my kids accounts so I called and asked them in the office and they said they will have the lunch person call me back. No one to this day has still called me back a week later. I called back the same day and said I didn’t hear from anyone. Try said we have to get a lunch report from the company. Ok I called the company as well and asked them to send me the lunch report and the company did within 2 days. I went in te school (7 days after I called the school ) and asked the lady in the office about it and she said “ oh we haven’t received the lunch report back yet “ I said I got it back last week. Clearly they could care less again because you would think the school could get it faster than I could since they work with this company everyday. Very disappointed With staff

Both of my children have attended this school. The oldest was here from K-5th and my youngest has been there K-4th. Out of the 7 different teachers I have interacted with (a few overlapped and taught both kids), I would say that 5 were outstanding, caring and loved teaching. The other 2 were ok, nothing bad, but they just didn't seem as involved as the other 5. The new principal has brought some great ideas and enthusiasm to the school and I expect to see great things continuing in the next several years. I would agree with another parent who didn't like the computer homework and expectations, it is easier for me to correct paper homework than to have to sit next to my child and watch as they work on the computer, so I have had to supplement with flash cards and grade level work books to ensure that they know what it going on and not just clicking buttons until they get a right answer, but this e-learning is not just limited to the school or the district, but is the way of operating with the technology generation. I also have issues with common core, but again, that is not caused by the school or district either. Bottom line IMO is that 75% of the teachers are amazing. E-learning/homework isn't my cup of tea, but I am adapting. Have had one or two issues with bullying/teasing, but they were dealt with swiftly and didn't involve physical bullying, more verbal that would have been considered normal teasing when I was in elementary. I have had lunch with my children several times and the school/staff are very happy to have parents visit and be involved in the school.

The teachers are fantastic. The administrators are supportive and the PTO is very active in making the school a great school.

I have had four children attend this school. It has been a very positive experience for all of them. We have had excellent, caring and helpful teachers. They have gone on to different schools and had no learning gaps or problems. A few years showed some decline in school overall testing scores but now there is a new principal with great ideas that are being implemented. Scores are improving for standardized tests and I am sure with this new leadership the school will only grow stronger and stronger. I am very happy my children attended High Plains!

My children are not passing school. The homework has not been helpful and has been busy work. The Title 1 program has been unhelpful as they expect kids to do computer work even when they don't have them at home.No individualized based tutoring to help failing students. However, this school does not give grades. Kids are given progressing as a grade.
