It's a tiny town school with a cult mentality. Never hiring outside of their group. All related. Teacher's & Aides freehanded to do whatever they please with kids. Too much in-house fighting amongst staff on campus. None of them would hold a job in a real city & state. Ridiculous backwoods mentality. What a shame in 2008 to see this exist!
