    This school system now has included another school 4 grades 4th-6th. Over-all the education is average n both schools. (My 4th grader says that she still feels like she's doing 3rd grade work) They seem 2 care about their students but lack any resources. They only offer the bare minimal n extracirricular activities & the area doesn't make up for it.Their bus system is very unprofessional & rude. Amazingly these schools r actually the best n the area. The Jr. High is scary. All-in-all this area & schools lack the southern hospitality I was looking 4 when I moved here.
