    Teachers here are great. School has very low student/teacher ratio for a town this size.

    The school and teaches are great over all in the other hand the office staff is terrible! Not polite at all and they talk down to you like they are doing you a favor when they are doing their job by helping your student or getting your son for DR. appointments etc. Las time I check they work for the public.
