The Webster County School is not a parent friendly school. It makes the parent feel as if they are hiding something, after asking parents to purchase al these items and we cant go to the school to check on them and make sure they are doing good. We have tried to volunteer our time to help do differnt things but they are never welcoming. Im a parent that loves to be involved with my child and all that he do. I beblieve there are great teachers but not enough Parent envolvement.

Its a small school with big hopes and dreams on a limited budget, but with the caring factualy, administrators and citizens we will make it to the top as one of the best schools your child could get an education if they so desire.
