I too attended and graduated from this school, the best years of my life were spent here. I have memories that can never be replaced, wonderful teachers I will never ever forget.

Low class school, old and falling apart, too many first year teachers.
—Submitted by a staff


Posted August 22, 2003

I attended Kermit Schools from grades K-12 and don't think I could have gotten a better education. The small class sizes provide students with more induvidual help and at the time of my attendance the teachers were exemplary.I believe this to be a distict worthy of exemplary status.
