Great school, great administrators, great teachers, great staff! Need more extracurricular activities for the students here in this oh-so-small town.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted April 8, 2008

This is a great school for the children of Beonit and the surrounding areas to come and learn. This school is not about coming and playing around in class, it is about getting a good education where there are great teachers, a great principle and a great superintendent.

I am an alumni of this wonderful school. My experience there was wonderful. The teachers are great, the students were like one big family, and the food was reasonable.
