It happened several years ago. This person still has an axe to grind. I have read her posts on from several weeks ago. Everytime she gets a chance she slings off and criticizes Caverna schools for a bad experience she had many years ago. It's time to drop it and move on.

My best advice for "homeschooler" would be to go down to Caverna Elementary and talk with Mr. Wyatt and any of the teachers there. It is an awesome school. It speaks for itself!!!
I went to both schools. Caverna Elementary is OK, but CHS is one step above a penetentiary. Trust me when I tell you it is not a good environment for learning. might get more street smarts than anything. Been ther done that. I know what I am talking about!! Moving to HCHS is the best thing I ever did. NO WAY I WOULD LET MY DAUGHTER GO TO CHS!!!

LeGrande - Hands down. Unless you want them to be criminals. Then Caverna might be the btter choice.

I am sick and tired of the crap at LeGrande. I don't know about Caverna. Someone in the posts hit it pretty good with the favortism that still goes on, the end of year stuff, true all the way. The rest of the kids are ON THEIR OWN to even get a decent grade, little teacher support to kids unless you are "in the in crowd", no communtication home to parents for what is going on. It is a bunch of crap. I will end up taking mine out if it gets any worse.

Caverna definetly is not any better! Favortism is their favorite word! Bullying against the law now! Caverna still doesn't enforce it! Kids make fun of and degrade kids everyday at this school and keep getting by with it! No wonder kids blow up on others, they tired of the same crap and no one doing anything about it! Definetly not Caverna unless you want your kid to get picked on relentlessy and nothing done about it!

well Mrs, lyle the principal at legrande has some mroal issues that she needs to work out. To me you should practice what you preach. As for her knowing everone my child goes to that school and i have been in their tons of times and have passed her in the hallway she has never once spoken to me. At the back to school bash i thought she was just rude. Other than her I think the school is great they just need to get her out of their and things would be so much better. Oh yea tons of teachers left at the end of last years most of those teachers was good. They also say you are always welcome at the school at anytime well just walk in and see how welcomed you feel by Mrs. Lyle

don't go to topix.net for advice but i will tell you something.
my two older brothers went to LeGrande, and so did i. I am an low tolerance for "bad talkers" person.
but the fact is my cousin went to caverna until the fourth grade because the cousin lives near there, but wound up changing, as did cousin's younger sibling, to LeGrande Elm. Cousins still attend school. I'd appreciate if neither caverna nor LeGrande were bad mouthed. im 16 and it appears i know better than to bad talk someone else's school. that's a sensitive situation.
I loved LeGrande. I still talk to my teachers from there. they are amazing people. It's not more amazing than caverna, but yes, atleast know it IS a better school. I've met countless kids from caverna moving to hart, and they like it better.
but. that's just an opinion.

You are so RIGHT! Caverna needs to be closed for good. I was told that if we can get enough signatures on a petition that we can get it done to. We are the tax payers of this town and we should have a little say in this matter. And believe me most of us would have more sense and knowledge and know how to run that school than what is up there trying to run it now.
First you have a superintendent who claims to be a preacher that cannot even tell the truth without telling a lie. Second either principle at either school cannot keep their eyes off of most of the women that come in the buildings. Not to mention the crazy lady in the main office, who does not even know how to keep books and payroll straight. She is to busy washing her car on company time or telling lies on people.
So I agree we do need to get a petition together with as many signatures as we possibly can and turn them in.

Every school has issues, and the real problem with Caverna is it is too small. Everyone thinks they know something about someone else. Bullying and Favoritism happens everywhere but it is more obvious at the really small schools.

I suggest you check out both schools. Don't just check out the principals and the teachers but check out the CATS test scores. There is alot to be considered. I just moved my kids to Barren County in January from Legrande and I was quite shocked at how far behind they were. I am not saying that their teachers at Legrande weren't great but the curriculm is really different. I don't have a clue about Caverna's but that is why I suggested checking out both really well.
