high school is very inadequate. There is no leadership. The students are not learning properly. The high school is a disgrace to the community. Things won't change due to small town politics.

I was very apprehensive about moving and placing my child in another school especially since he was opposed to it. But this school has been excellent. The school has brought him out of his shell and he has blossomed. They're alot of extra things for the students to become involved in but school work must come first

This High School has terrible leadership. The students are not learning properly. I would not recommend this school to anyone. As far as I can tell, there are no plans in the immediate future to correct the problems at the school.

This is a great school for your kids to feel that they are important as an individual not as a group. There are also many things for your kids to become involved with.
