Our tax dollars are going to waste by allowing this school to remain open, but consolidation is considered a nasty word around these parts. This school is behind academically. My kids were in high school and was learning what my nephew from Blue Ridge was being taught in 7th grade. The teachers let the students slide by constantly allowing them to turn in homework late or retake tests for a higher grade, which promotes laziness and procrastination. Extra-curricular activities are very limited. Especially for sports because there's not enough students so everything has to be co-oped.

I am a graduate of the 1967 class. I had a wonderful time at this school and it gave me the education I needed to get started in the real world. I would not trade my time I had in this school for anything. Can anyone put in the direction of where I may get a class ring. I lost mine several years ago and have always wanted to get another one. Any help is appreciated. Thank You & Go Eagles
