    School needs to modernize alot of their processes. Overall it is not a bad school for a small rural community. Some of the teachers are pretty good others do not actively reach out or have open communication with parents if any issues arise. On the upside they use alot of helpful tools to make sure the kids are actively learning and to bring parents into helping that happen by spending time with their kids in spelling and reading.

    Very poor management of special ed students and other behavior issue children.
