This School is lacking in a lot of areas. The academics could be taught more efficiently, they could provide more extra curricular activities and not all the teachers or principle know each of the children by their names. Teachers fail to send graded work home or inform the parents of student difficulties completing work.

This is a really small rural school. All the staff from every teacher to the superintendent,lunch room staff, secretaries, maintenance, and bus drivers know every child by name. They are very caring and the students feel they can talk to them about any problems they are having at school or home. If a student needs extra attention with homework or tutoring that is always available and tailored to that particular student's needs. There has also been times that staff has helped out in areas outside of school related issues. A few examples I can personally think of is that one time when my son was younger-school let out early and I did not let his grandmother know, so she was not home yet-the bus driver noticed her vehicle was not home and kept him on the bus and he stayed with him during a meeting until she picked him up. Another time he had started new medication and the cook noticed he had not been eating as much as he usually did and she voiced her concern to me about his appetite decrease. They keep the parents very updated on the student's progress and any areas they need to work on. All students have the opportunity to be involved in extra-curricular activities and sports. My son has attended this school from Kindergarten and is currently in 7th grade.
