I graduated from this school. Overall this school fails to meet qualites that other schools offer academically. I know myself and many other students did not leave that school prepared for College or the real world. Parents and the community do not show true interest in the schools sports. Its a small rual school and it appears to stay staus quo.

I graduated from here, and while there are some excellent high school teachers, the overall experience is not something I would want to repeat ever again.

I think this is a remarkable school for a rural area. The students benefit from the smaller size but still have academic chanllenges.
