I am a current student, about to leave for Highschool in the Genoa School District. I think this school is absolutley great! Small it may be, but there aren't many distractions. Curious about the disciplining? It's great! At this school, it's mainly under a fair 'violation' system. If you want your child to go to college on an athletic scholarship, their basketball team is great, though they do of course have more teams, hopefully more to come yet. It is still a growing school, but it's even now full of excellent academic opportunities. I've definitely learned a lot!
