The students are friendly, appropriately social, and have lots of school spirit. Most of all, the students care about learning and strive to do the best that they can. The teachers are well trained and practice researched based teaching techniques. The administration supports the teachers and staff while making sure the students have a safe physical and emotional learning environment.

I have taught here for 23 years, the economy has hit us pretty hard, it has been a great place to work. I have had three kids that will have graduated from here, all recieving an excellent education and having wonderful athletic experiences. We probably have one of the best FFA chapters in Arkansas.

This school district is wonderful, warm, welcoming and fantastic to work for-the kids, parents and fellow teachers are the nicest in the USA-We're small but big in the things that matter.

The school staff is friendly and helpful. I like the idea of a small school so that way my child has more one on one with the teacher.

Moutainburg is a small town school with a big attitude. I have attended this school for 12 years and I am very pleased with the level of education I have received. The only downfall is the limited number of class choices, but there is enough to get a great education. If your looking to meet some great people and grow up in a great school Mountainburg is the place for you.

This is small town America in a nutshell. If you want your child to attend a place where everyone knows their name and includes them in community spirit for life, send them here.
