Its a rural school and needs more money and much better food!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 14, 2008

Most of the teachers are good. I do believe that they need to look at the principal and vice principal..These two women, in my opinion need to be replaced. Rude is all I can say. I have a kid in this school. If I would've known how some of the teachers and staff were I wouldn've never moved here.
