    This is a small school. The grades are Prekindergarten to the eighth grade. I found the student to teacher ratio rather good. The kids had extra attention in the classrooms compared to larger schools. We did not have the same problems that you see at larger schools. We had no problems with the bus drivers they were quite nice. And I thought the coach was a good guy. They did not win but he related sports to being a good member of the community. I was happy with the school and would recommend it to others.

    This is a very small school. We were there a year and half. At the time it was 80 students from pk-8 grade. It did have some faults as all schools do but overall pretty good school. The teachers were pretty good. We had problems with bus drivers and the coach that is not a coach. All the kids know each other but spread out amoung a big area. Lunch time there is no choice its just one main thing and thats it. The teachers teach two grades in one class room at the same time. But after moving seems they were a little more advanced in some things than other schools. 2001-2003
