Posted April 26, 2008

while the school board does have its issues, this is a good school. After seeing how two other schools operate (before moving here) I am glad to have my children enrolled here. The small community is warm and inviting to newcomers if you are the same.

Posted October 21, 2006

The facilities are run down, and two communities (Longville and Remer) continually bicker about where the main school should be. The district has many issues to deal with, However, there are some very good educators, but some very poor ones too. Small town attitudes are prevalent and hinder progress. My children attended this district and was never so glad to move.
