School is very small. Some classes that should be offered are not; IE anatomy and physiology. Some A/P classes are taught on 'every other year' basis due to qualified teacher only being able to teach one class per year. Honors students are challenged. Mediocre students need to have parents advocate for them to ensure that their child is being challenged and getting the classes they need to attend college or tech school after graduation. New principal is doing a great job of updating curriculum. Anwers parent's questions in a timely manner and will meet with parents. Very pro student and wants students to be successful. Sports teams very limited due to school size. On line classes are available but not all students feel comfortable with this setting. Check where your child will be going after high school to ensure that the proper classes are available for his success.
This school, for its size and resources, has an excellent amount of class selections, including many AP and Honors classes. I graduated in 2007 and there were many exceptional teachers, however many have retired or are very close to retirement. However, the younger replacements are more than adequate to take on the responsibilities and have proven themselves excellent educators. The school is very small which is good for class sizes and a low student-teacher ratio, however it lacks the ability to diversify students in preparation for college. The activities and sports struggle from the availability of participants, but more so the lack of funding, thus restricting students from many sport or EC scholarships for college. Academically wonderful, but painfully small and and financially restricted-we don't even have a football team.
The teachers are overpaid for the amount of students that are enrolled. They do not possess the dedication they should have. The entire board of ed is a joke. They offer no after school care for working parents. We pay a lot of taxes just to pay the teacher a large salary and the kids lose out.
It is a small school but offers a respectable amount of AP courses and Honors courses available on Campus and through the University of North Dakota distance learning. The majority of graduating SR. go on to college or advanced certificate programs. Vocational Education is provided through Area Vocational schools for Agricultural (Ledyard Vo-Ag) and Trade (Grasso Tech) to community children not wishing to pursue a traditional college prep.
What would you like to see happen within the immediate(1-3 years) future? Do you have any long term suggestions? Are you willing to volunteer to make this a great place to be? Just wondering...appreciate your feedback.
The class distrabution is not good; some classes of the same course with the same teacher has 7 students while anothe has barely enough seats to hold all 22 students. Sports are not good even some of the coachs dont care. There is no diversity in students and a lot more than a couple teachers have bias opinions but some are extremely good teachers. and There is also almost no choices for courses because of the fact that the school is so small if there isnt enough intrested than the students who whant to take the course are not allowed to. Food prices change without warning so and many times there is not enough time to eat one's lunch because of time constraints.
