This school seems to fail students with special ed needs. They try but just do not have the expertise to teach students with different learning styles. They also do not have students using textbooks so help at home can be extremely frustrating. They do offer Spanish but it seems like a waste for most of the students unfortunately because they just don't seem to learn anything until middle school and then only the advanced Spanish students.

This school does not allow students to take home textbooks...other than that...it seems to be a lovely school. I am a relative of two students and have difficulty helping them with homework. Also, missed work is hard to catch up on without textbooks.

It is a great, small town school where everyone knows everyone else. It helps to build a great sense of community.

This school isn't for the special education student only for averge students that don't need the time or help with there work.

This is a great school district for the average student. Not so good in the Special Education Department in K-5, so if your child needs these services, you must be an involved parent. Most of the teachers here are great and have many years of experience. They have two different after school programs....Gap (Gilmanton Afterschool Program) and EDP (Extended Day Program). I would highly recommend the GAP program, as it is more stuctured and has much more supervision.
