    This school has educated many fine professionals & tech savvy service & trades people from this rather rural small community!

    I feel this high school was very well run but there are a few things I would like to say there hot/cold lunch program is for the birds!.. the kids at the elementry school are getting the same amount of food as high schoollers! I think that every one knows that a 15-18 year old child eats more than a 8-11 year old. I think something should be done. Thank you
