Lacking quality leadership! Outdated teaching methods. Lacking cultural diversity/exploration. A school that is in desperate need of attention all around.The leadership posses antiquated notions of education and would benefit from some field trips to other schools outside of the area to see all that schools can be. The anti bullying campaigns circulating the rest of the country have some how completely missed this school. But hey, why change if you don't have to? On a positive note, there are small class sizes and some teachers that have made it into the new millenium.
This is a small school with excellent teaching and administrative staff. It sits on a hill in a charming small town and the community is very much involved. Test scores don't tell the whole story. A student can do as well as they want here. Last year, fifth graders went to the state spelling and geography bees. Special needs students appear to get the resources they need. Because class sizes are only 10-15 students, parents can have a close interaction with teachers if they desire it. After-school care is available and there are many activities for students to choose from. The PTO is very active for a small school. It's not a perfect school but I couldn't be more pleased!
This is the best school ever and I love it . It is so much better then this school here.I love it and I miss it. It's so exciting and there is never a single dull moment!
