Most kids in this school have the attitude that they are better than others. Wouldn't send my kids to this place again. Comes from what they hear at school and home.

Menahga School is an excellent school with a small town closeness and teachers that truly care about your children. The teachers are exceptional and teach the students in a classroom setting, but take the time to challenge each child on an individual basis. If your child is ahead in areas of study, they will not hold your child back. Instead, they will allow your child to attend classes in the next grade level to ensure that their is no boredom and to encourage continued growth. (I know this from personal experience.) And, on the flip side, if your child needs extra attention and help in certain areas, they will also take the time to make sure that those needs are addressed as well. I am thankful that my children will be given a great education and will grow up with the life skills necessary to be successful. Thank you Menahga Schools!

My daughter loves this school! She went to another district before and did not like it. The teachers and students are all friendly. Everyone is liked for who they are, not how much money their parents have. My daughter is very intelligent and there have been times where she hasn't felt challenged, but overall the academics are of high quality. I like how they get students interested in sports and have programs for them even at the elementary level. Their music program is terrific. They perform the cutest Christmas program! You know it's good when year after year there is standing room only. The school food is also exceptional! This is an overall great school from PreK-12!
