The "powers that be" in this little town control the school board and the school. If they don't like a teacher, the teacher is sent packing. Basketball rules the school and EVERYTHING else is put on the back burner. The arts are non-existant. Elemenary teachers are all pretty good, but several core subjects in upper grades are absolutely lacking. English and Math to be exact. There is also always some sort of drama or rumor erupting around the gossipy small town and school. If you live here best to find your kids education elsewhere.

Send your kids to Shoshone where they might have a chance at getting an actual education. The religious oppression that permeates the community and occurs in this school is alarming. Attempting to forbid teachers to teach core curriculum about reproduction (Google this topic) and advancing/graduating illiterate children who can barely read and write only hurts the child and places a burden on the rest of society.

My Children love going to school and I love the teachers and environment the children are afforded. I have four children attending and all have done well. I also appreciate the fact that I too can be involved in my childrens education here. We appreciate the teachers and the work they do and how much they care for our children not only educationally but personally. Thanks DHS teachers and staff.

Agree with the previous posting about teachers not working with the children. As a parent, communication from the school has been dismal at best. Phone calls and messages are not returned. Our step-son was recently "given" extra points because he was behind in his AR goal. This does not help him become accountable, which is something we are parents are trying to instill, nor does it give him any incentive. Other children are left with the thought, "Why bother reading if the teacher will awards you the points anyway?". The education, classes and activities afforded at other schools is better. This school (and town) is extremely religion oriented and that seems to be more important to many of the staff than ensuring that all of the children receiving a quality education. I am seeking other schooling options for my children until the situation improves.

This was not a good school. They say that small schools are good schools but that is and understatement for this school. The eduation wasn't good and the teachers don't really work with the students. The teachers give the grades acording to religion. I'm not rasest but the kids, teachers, and all the people are very rasest about religion. I have no rate for this school.

I would agree with the previous posting--that 'smaller schools' typically do give more one-on-one attention. However, I do believe there is always room for improvement and these kids deserve to have classes and activities available to them that larger schools have. I would love to see the kids have access to a Certified Art and/or Music teacher!

The teachers are here because they love children, they are able to give more one on one attention than they would be able to in a bigger school.
