At the middle and high school levels, this school focuses only on its small town sports, and does not prepare students academically. Favors are given to athletes, and some teachers join students to watch sports film during class instead of instructing. The atmosphere is very closed and biased toward locals. The 8 rating is misleading because it includes lower grades. Look at the high school breakdown, and you will see a better reflection.
This school provides a small, caring environment for students and holds them to consistently high standards. The K-12 nature of the school allows positive interaction among different ages, from peer tutoring to elementary students being able to participate in the high school homecoming parade. Students are polite and generally have the values of hard work, discipline and respect I want my children to develop as they grow.
