Dirks-Anderson school is an one of the best schools that I have seen. The academics are phenomenal. My 4th grader is able to do math that I don't remember doing until junior high. She loves it. My kindergartner was happy there. This is the only school that I know of that truly makes all the children feel like they are part of one huge family. The staff was absolutely wonderful. My family and I was very impressed when we enrolled our children in school. This school encourages parents to get involved, become a sub, and be a part of all activities. If you are interested in finding a small school to raise your children, I would recommend this school. I haven't seen a better school yet to raise my children in. Thank you all at Dirks-Anderson, Mr. Merrill and all.
