School Reviews

I like that it is a small school and there is a lot of one on one teaching...a lot of the teachers were there when my husband went through the school. The only concern is wood shop, vo-ag and trade training was taken out of the district and I think we still need to teach a trade to our children to fall back on. Not all students are computer or business oriented.
