It's just another small town school. the kids that were bullies when I went there, have kids that are bullies now. this town will never change. fortunately the TEACHERS love the children, and this is evident. they sure aren't paying them enough to do it otherwise.

The teachers leave tons to be desired and they favor the children who have the names that matter in this city. A child and parent would be better off going to one of the many private Christian schools in the area!

General academics are average. AP or fast track programs are corrupted by influential families that exclude true students of merit. Leadership is a huge shine on, dont expect to get anywhere. Huge home schooling comunity with same complaints of public schools in Buhl. Punitive discipline measures are the norm including social exclusion. Programs such as music or sports are classic sports such as football etc. Poor coaching quality. PE class is hoola hoops etc. Parental involvement is modest. Would be fantastic if better organized.

This school has the potential of being great! There is always room for improvement and I believe that more parents should get involved. I understand the communication breakdown but something has to be done to bridge this gap.

The teachers at this school are excellent. They go the extra mile. The school is located in among the junior high and high school. The smaller children get to see the older children. It is a good place. The only draw back to this school is that the administration is not parent friendly. The staff habitually twist the facts and cause problems for parents. The brag about involving parents, however, they exclude them at every turn. If you decide to enroll your child here be ready to fight the administration.
