The teachers here really care about the students. If church going teachers is important to you, then the teachers at Coalfield will make you happy. A great community that backs the schools. Limited curriculum due to size, but if you are looking for a school that cares about your child, then this is it!

I attended this school from K-12. We transferred my son to this school about 6 years ago. We like the small size and the parent/teacher involvement in the community. The school administration works well with the parents and the PTO. Just this year, after school programs have begun to help with tutoring and basic skills for those who test below national averages.
