You clearly have no clue about which you speak. Sciotoville Community Schools (d.b.a. East High School) is the number one community school in Ohio. No distortion of facts can change that. It is due to our principals, governing board and teachers. Your smear campaign is probably the result of you not being hired. Thus, take your sour grapes elsewhere.

not trying to smear anything so calm down.....was just curious on the rankings cause i hear alot of people bashing schools that ranked at the top.....why would a parent not want to see the son/daughter go to the best school in there area?....getting the best education for your child is what this is about....

I am so thrilled that I took my children out of SCS. They are doing so much better, their attitudes have changed and they actually want to go to school. And no I am not someone who didn't get a job and I have no personal agenda. Just stating the facts about the difference the change made in my kids.

Not surprised. It used to be a good school till all the changes. Back when Decamp was there it wasnt like that....well ole bill and the rulers of sciotoville got what they wanted....changed everything the way they wanted (mainly a setup in order to benefit themselves. Any family of the stapletons or Shopes...or any of the buddies of these people will automatically be hired....they think they are masterminds........but slowly the school goes down ....down....down...

yeah...I have a friend who just took her kid out of there. He was an A student...but something wasnt right. He didnt want to go to school. The fact was he was being bullied by a kid who is one of the "Stapleton" family kids. She knew it would do no good to say anything. You have to know that bunch.....it is like the select few....mostly stapletons are royalty...everyone else come last!
My friends son is doing wonderful now....as happy as can be.

My oldest goes there...she likes it some days but has trouble with mean girls and her grades aren't always the greatest. I always thought her grades were due to her paying more attention to friends and boys than school work. I know they are family oriented and have lots of events and activities for the children and their families. I was unaware of all this negativity?

Those are the facts! SEA just hired two new teachers aids and of course one is a Stapleton and the other's husband works for the family company. What a joke!

All of u bashing the Stapleton's obviously don't know them, because they r wonderful people!! They would do anything to help out anyone.. It's people like all of u that the school doesn't need ( people affraid of change for the better).. And when decamp was there the school was ran like a prison, and no one liked going to school.. And all in all he had affairs with students!!!

a serious problem in the schools anymore is the ATTITUDE of the students. many kids anymore have disrespectful attitudes. toward teacher, toward subs, toward anyone. when i was in high school, if i didnt like a teacher or didnt agree with a teacher, i never said anything. never backtalked ever. today, many kids backtalk and are very disrespectful. times sure have changed.

i say parents need to be reprimanded as well. make them sit in class a whole day by their kids when the kids cause problems! parents and students take free public education for granted.

The "other" is an East graduate and earned a bachelor degree from Ohio University. Her husband's family owns the business. I think what you people do not understand is SCS attempts to find and hire individuals who care about the community. Generally speaking, people who live in the community, went to school in the community, have children in the school, care about the students more than people who are simply going to work to get a check. Does this make sense ?

I have to say, I sent my son to EPE for K and 1st grade. I was nervous about switching him to SEA but my kids are Tartans NOT Trojans. I feel I made the best choice for my son and now my daughters. I am not a "name" my kids are who they are and they thrive on everything they learn. When my son was at EPE he was bored because he would complete his work and just sit there, now when he completes something they give him something more to work on. He is moving forward thanks to the great teachers at SEA instead of waiting around for the teachers to do more at the other school.
I don't understand the name game never have. I went to school with the Stapletons and I just don't get how everyone thinks that they try to run the school. They are TRUE Tartans and they are making the community stronger with their support whether it's financial, or the use of their talents in teaching, coaching, or what have you. Stop trying to drag their name down. They actually CARE about the kids of this town and are trying to make things better and kids have a better future. GO BLUE!!!

I like the idea of sitting in the classroom with my kid if he/she misbehaves but just so you know, I asked to sit with my child just for one day because my child was causing some problems for one of the teachers. I was told that I would not be aloud to do so. When I ask why I couldn't I was told that is the policy if SCS. So your theory wouldn't work there.

I do believe it was one student and guess what she was a Stapleton.

it makes some sense but if u want your school to be more about education and change for the better, why would u hire a local family to run your school who already knows how messed up it has been and will be?......hire some1 that has no roots there and let them do there thing.....dont fight it....

You forgot that they also look for Stapleton folks....if you ain't a Stapleton descendant then you may not get the job no matter how qualified you are.
