Unfortunately this is a small town school and with that is the small minded people that run it. Your children can get ahead if they carry a specific last name! If not then you just go through the motions of school. There isn't much for extracurrilar activities due to poor funding. Bullying is also an issue by students as well as some of the teachers.
High numbers of children labeled as having learning disabilities resulting in a slow, boring learning process for the average and above average students. The gifted program is a disgrace. It is only offered for 30 min- 1 hour twice a week at the most for grades 3-6. There is also a large number of teachers that don't stay, and most are straight out of college with little experience. Unfortunately our school is in a small community with little funding to make the staff (including principles and superintendents) want to stay. The extracuricular activities are poor also due to poor funding and lack of volunteers.
