    There are several academic programs to satisfy any child! Extracaurricular activities are the same as any other school. There is some parent involvement but there could be more. I would also like to add that for the Special Needs 'Program' basically there isn't one! My child could do better at a full time day care! This school really needs to improve the quality of every 'aide' involved they need lots more training!

    We as a family enjoy Colfax teachers and staff they really take the time to get to know each ond every student and their family. They do alot of one on one work with the students. If the need arises they are quick at giving the extra help and tracking the kids even after the help is no longer needed.
