    Some of my favorite people teach there. They love the children and are very interested in their futures. In this day of so many kids and parents being out of control discipline wise and expecting teachers to do miracles the teachers here really try to fill in a nearly impossible gap. they are to be commended on their efforts to make Raleigh County a better place to raise and educate children.
