    This year is really great!!! We have a new principal who is willing to work with us as parents. The atmosphere of the school is so much better now. I really like my child's third grade teacher Mrs. Gordon. She is always so positive and caring.

    My children have all attended Craigsville and they are on their way to becoming very productive citizens. The teachers try hard to keep up with the latest research on educational issues. There is an afterschool program in effect. I only wish they had more ways to engage the students and parents more actively in education. There needs to be more activities like holiday programs 9 week assemblies to honor achievements student recognitions etc.
