This school offers excellent teacher/student ratios. In Kindergarten the average class size is 18-20 students and each class also has a F/T para to help out. The older grades average 18-24 kids. They have an excellent science and math program and they are one of the only schools around that continue to provide art class for all the elementary students! They do have Title 1 services, as well as after school services, and they added a Gifted and Talented program last year that was wonderful! If you're debating about sending your child here, I really recommend taking the time to check it out, talk to some of the teachers. You won't regret it.

I have three children enrolled in this school and have been very pleased with it. They offer small class sizes, an excellent science program, and are the only school around that still offers an art program- and a very good one. They also have their 5th and 6th grade set up wonderfully, called a 6-5 hive, in which students are given are great transition between elementary and high school.

I have three children that have attended the Frazee-Vergas School District. I am very happy with the school. The school has preschool-grade 6 all in one building. The Head-Start and Early Childhood Special Ed. programs are all located in the elementary building also. The Jr. and Sr. high school is all together in another building. Class sizes are between 20-28 students in the elementary school. The school has good sports and extra-curricular activities. The media center in the high school is newly updated and has two computer labs. The school has a variety of sports. It seems to compete at the state level in wrestling every year. Other sports are good too. The teams are small enough where are kids get to compete. I highly recommend the Frazee-Vergas School District.
