Posted April 5, 2006

I am not a parent but a past graduate of Mountain Iron-Buhl. Mt. Iron-Buhl was a great school to attend as a student. It had the small community feel where all of the students knew every teacher and vice versa. I received an excellent education here and was involved in many extracurricular activities, which helped me become a well rounded student. It was a great school!
