This is the best school in the area. We have a big family & because of job moves, we had kids go to all the other area schools. The teachers and the other students do such a great job of making every student feel welcome and encourage all kids to learn in a much safer atmosphere than other area schools. Our kids excelled in and made everlasting friendships in the band and various sports they were in. The Great Schools Web page display of test scores is silly. The yearly fluctuation in test scores shows the ambition of the class of each particular year and has no relationship to the effort or quality of the teachers.

The Laona High School is known for a cooperative atmosphere with mutual respect between the teachers and students. A coordinated curriculum from elementary years up to the end helps students remember important concepts that are learned and reviewed. Kids will be introduced to new words and then see the same vocabulary reappear in their music books and later in the day do art projects related to the same terms. This school system is very organized but the teachers are so good at making it fun, that my kids don't even realize how much they are learning. I am so glad we moved here. Even when the principal called my house about trouble that my child caused in school it was done in a way that wasn't humiliating and it seemed to me that the administration was interested in getting my child on the right track rather than scolding. My spouse's work demands that we move around a lot & this is the finest school system we have ever been involved in. Even the parents all have a welcoming attitude.

This is a wonderful school where there is a correct student teacher ratio. Where parents teachers and students work together for a common goal. We work together as a team for the best outcome for the student. Being a small school in the middle of a national forest and little funding the community has had to come together to keep the school open. It would be wonderful to win this prize not only for the school but for the students. Go "Laona High School"!

The school can't do field trips due to a lack of funding. There are very limited after-school activities, especially in arts, crafts etc. Some fundamental science classes have been cut and the students will not be able to compete at colleges and in a global market. Funding is what it takes and more parent involvement. Please, parents, there is no job market in Laona, do what you have to for your kids!
