Community ratings & reviews

    My children have excelled academically and athletically in this school. Staff is responsive and parents work cooperatively for the betterment of the students.

    This school did have at one time a relatively satisfactory program but over the recent years many of the good teachers have left and the quality of academics and discipline have declined. Bullying and students struggling academically or with special education needs are not appropriately addressed if at all. Parent involvement is high from the community as it is a small community but not all parents feel welcomed to be involved by the administration or staff.

    Very good academic programs and absolutely outstanding extracurricular activities. Small town school with active parents and community.
