I am not from this area originally so have a very different opinion. There are very little extracurricular activities to get involved in, and almost no sports. Handling of special needs children is appalling and there are way too many special needs children in the classes. The teachers try but the administration is rude, lacks knowledge and just completely out of touch with current research and literature. I in no way am kept abreast of things my child is doing, or events. I thought this would be a great little town to move to and for my son, but it has been disastrous academically. Walking the streets of this town, you can see how poorly the indigenous population has been educated.

The small class sizes are wonderful - more attention to each student! Also with the smaller school more of the teachers know who you are and there is better opportunity for the kids to play in all extracurricular activities!!! My girls love it!

Awesome school! Teachers & Staff work so well to keep parents involved with their kids education and the happenings at the school. I love all the extras that the school provides to keep the kids involved like the spring reading sweepstakes. Such a great school for a small community and a feeling of family!

It is a wonderful school. The teachers are great and the class size is small so the children receive more attention. They have great teacher's aides that are there to help with children with learning problems.
