Most of the teaching staff are fine, easy to talk to, bring up problems, but some are self centered egotists and operate their classrooms as military camps. The administration and some teachers hang together in and out of school and seem to favor the 'better' families
This is a great small town school. It offers alot of opportunity, extras, and pays attention to speacial needs. No waiting list for needed programs and excellence is noticed and rewarded. The teachers for the most part truly care about your kids, and the community is small but belives it takes a village to raise a child.
The academics are solid here, although teacher-parent communications could be better. Sports- great! I grew up here, received a strong education and passion for learning and am proud to have my children educated here.
Although much of the teachning staff shines or at least has mastered desperate adequacy, the administration is bogged down in politics and playing games with what passes for families of influence in surroundings more provincial than pastoral.
Teachers are old-school and clique oriented. Budget items for necessary maintenance barely pass; anything else fails, e.g. sports. Enrollment is declining and there is no diversity here.
