The school is old and falling down. The principal is lazy. The classes are over crowded because they closed Silver Rim and made all of the kids go to this school. There is hardly any extracurricular activities left. They have cut everything. If you have no choice but to live in Tonopah, I suggest home school. This school will make you children fall behind.
