My kids will be attending Raleigh County this fall, are the schools pretty good? Is there alot of bullying? Teachers pretty good? They are nervous about going to a new school.

Crab Orchard and Bradley Elementary schools are probably the best. Park is a good middle school. The rest are probably all fairly adequate. The High schools seem all pretty similar. Woodrow probably has more offerings curriculum-wise. Before the rest of the county gets all defensive, these are the schools I am familiar with....

I agree with Crab Orchard and Bradley being the best elem schools. I would have to go with independence middle and high schools. Just my opinion though

One child will be in 3rd and one in 5th. They will attend Soak Creek. Wyoming County middle school starts with grade 5, someone told me its still elementary in Raleigh County. Any info would be great. Thanks.

Crab Orchard and Cranberry-Prosperity Elem School, Maxwell Hill.
Shady/Liberty/Independence for High School.

Fifth grade is elementary. Maxwell Hill is good. If you plan on living in a neighborhood longterm, I would choose the Coal City area. Independence Middle and High are really good. Coal City Elementary is alright too. Good luck.

Just don't believe everything you read! Crab Orchard school is a school that will put your kids through hell and back again. They and the parents will need a nerve pill before its over.

Crab Orchard prepares their kids well. More than one middle school teacher has told me so. Sometimes when people don't agree with a principal or teacher, they say negative things about the school in general. Mrs. Kelly is tough and some of the teachers are tough, but the kids are well-taught and well-disciplined!

I hate to hear that you had a bad experience with Crab Orchard Elem. We had a bad experience with one of the 3rd grade teachers but she is retiring so that's taken care of!!!
What happened that was do bad there?

eVERY HIH SCHOOL IN THE COUNTY HAS TEEN PREGNANCY ISSUES. EVERY HIGH SCHOOL IN THE COUNTY HAS DRUG AND ALCOHOL ISSUES. EVERY HIGH SCHOOL IN THE COUNTY HAS FIGHTS. 99% OF THE PEOPLE WHO SAY BAD THINGS ABOUT WWHS, SAY SO BECAUSE THEY HAVE ONE ISSUE THAT THE OTHER SCHOOLS REALLY DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH. WWHS HAS A LARGE POPULATION OF BLACK STUDENTS. SO IF YOU DO NOT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE OR FOREIGN ( OR CHILDREN OF FOREIGNERS), THEN GO ELSEWHERE. IF YOUR CHILD PLANS TO GO TO COLLEGE, I HATE TO TELL YOU THIS BUT MANY STUDENTS THERE ARE ALSO FOREIGN OR BLACK. I AM NOT BLACK, NOR AM I FOREIGN. I HAD THREE CHILDREN GO THROUGH WWHS. AL THREE WERE IN THE TOP 20, ONE IN THE TOP 5. WE WERE VERY HAPPY WITH WWHS. IF THESE ISSUES ARE NOT THE REASON FOR YOU THAT SAY BAD THINGS ABOUT WWHS, THEN PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY WWHS IS SUCH A HORRIBLE PLACE. NO MATTER WHERE YOUR CHILDREN GO TO SCHOOL, IF THEY GO FOR THE RIGHT REASONS THEY WILL BE VERY SUCCESSFUL. YOU CAN GO TO CHURCH AND FIND A FIGHT IF THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. IF YOU WANT TO BE A PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF SOCIETY, ANY OF THE FOUR SCHOOLS WILL PREPARE YOUR CHILD FOR COLLEGE AND LIFE.

You can call the Board of Education and request a ranking report of the schools. It will tell you student/teacher ratio, drop out rate, and west test scores for the school as a whole. Hope this helps
