I recently moved to the area from Washington state. This is my sons first year of school as a kindergartner. The school seems to be average in teaching. A little behind I would say, however it is also a reflection of the community. Time spent with the child by the parent outside of class is important. My son is doing quite well. He was moved up to the first grade and is excelling. The teachers can only teach so much. The rest is up to the parents. They do take the children on field trips, which is good. There is a before and after school program offered by CYS (child youth services) based on your income. I feel pretty comfortable with my child going there. Everyone is nice. All in all, it is what it is for a very small community.

This school is out in the middle of no where. The teachers are old locals, whose education on society and normal city life is far from close. It used to be a military run school and when the military stopped control it lossed creditability. No extracurricular activities. No supervision at luch or break time. Kids can just walk off property without anyone's knowledge and care.
