    I love the small school. Everyone knows everyone! The smaller class sizes help the students learn more.

  • (5 years ago)

    It is small enough to be personal for each student yet does well academically as a group. The teachers are outstanding and very professional as well as having a true love for their profession.

    I adore Rural Dell. Simple as that. My children have been in two other school districts in the area and I could not get them out fast enough. The teachers & staff are wonderful caring and talented and I could not be happier!

    Rural Dell has a lot to offer. Small but not too small of a school good community support lots of nice parent volunteers and a competent and caring staff who work well together to offer the best possible education to students. I have been a teacher in another district but feel very happy with the education support and the type of friends my grand nieces have at Rural Dell.
