The teachers seem caring and committed, but the school does not have the personnel or funding needed to create a well-rounded experience for all children to succeed. Children who need speech therapy or aides due to learning challenges or special needs do not have them. Children who need step-by-step instruction are overlooked, not because of a lack of empathy but because one teacher to twenty-two students can not attend to each student's special needs. No speech therapy is offered on campus at this time to my knowledge.

My child has special needs and fell and got seriously hurt at the school during school time, this was not properly dealt with, not enough safety procedures and due to health issues a more modified day is needed, but not given. This school is not equipped or safe for children who have special needs.

The administrators are incompetent and unprofessional. Being a small, rural school district, there are a lot of cut corners in providing services to special education students. There is a lack of knowledge of state/fed laws, or perhaps a lack of caring. There are some very good and dedicated regular education teachers, despite the lack of good leadership.
