Candor has mostly great staff. In terms of academics, I have always had the opportunity to get college credit. I will be getting about 45 college credits from a community college located nearby in Binghamton, so they will transfer to most all schools. It is a very small school, so the classes that they offer on-site are quite limited. They do, however, try to compensate this by offering a plethora of online college courses. I definitely prefer classes that are in-person, so this was not very beneficial to me, but I do know many people who have found this system to work very well for them. The student body is quite narrow-minded, but I think that this has a lot to do with the area in itself, not the teachers.

I like this school very much. Teachers here respect their students and always ready to help. They like joking very much too. Students here are very active. Besides having good grades,they volunteer ,take part in different extracurricular activities and are deeply involved in the local community.
A few excellent teachers mean that the academically-ambitious can get attention and training. For everyone else, this is probably your average rural farm town school, with little hope or enthusiasm to be had anywhere other than the local football field.
