The Family School invites parent participation and has a very good student-teacher ratio ... presently three great teachers for a total of about 30 kids in three class groups through 8th grade. Students attend 'regular' classes half time and home-school half time, and ideal mix. The school has achieved the AYP for three years in a row, which speaks well of the quality of education.

This is a combination of home and public schooling. Students attend class for two and a half days a week and are home schooled the other days. Parents are required to teach math and language arts from the curricula of their choosing. Class sizes are limited to 15 students and currently classes combine 1st & 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th and 7th & 8th grades. Art, PE, Computer Lab, etc are provided by the school system. Parent involvement is extraordinarily high. It is not unusual for field trips to be attended by more parents than students.
