Great school if your religious. School is dominated by the "Good news club" Teachers preach in the class room about Jesus. They are not worried about "teaching" but passing the state test. They have students spend their whole time memorizing the answers to these tests to get better grades on them so the school can get more funding. Its a sham. This is a SMALL town, dominated by churches. Everyone in power here is literally family. If your not one of them your nothing. They have succeeded in taking a beautiful, smart child and in the course of only 1.5 school years she has gone from loving school, to hating it and never wanting to go back. She is 7! If you have ANY choice stay away from this school (and town) at all costs.
