    The school consists of three floors for student classrooms. The staff does an excellent job of maintaining control of the students in a safe and efficient manner. In my dealings with the staff they act very professional and are respectful and caring of the students and their parents. The only thing I would try and improve on is allowing students who do not eat breakfast into the gym on cold or rainy days. Instead of having two teachers waiting by the doors to keep children from coming in one could be at the door (east) and one teacher in the gym to keep order. For this reason only I give the school 4 stars. Thank You!

    The best thing about this school is the absolute zero tolerance for bullys and/or name calling. Some of the best teachers are found here despite the rural area.
