    I have been a teacher and parent at Custer. We bought our property specifically so our child could attend Custer. They have a dedicated and caring staff that collaborates to provide the best education possible for their students. There is also a strong PTO and a real sense of community and history. We love this school!

    Custer is a small school where the whole staff gets to know the children. Parents are encouraged to get involved and come into the classrooms. Both my chidlren are in this school and I do not plan on moving until they are in Middle School.
