The school has a zero tolerance for bullying, but some still occurs that the teachers are unaware of. The school nurse and counselor are there every day to help when problems arise. The teachers are trained on how to respond in a school shooting instance and since it is a small town the police and fire personnel can be there in a matter of minutes.

The school offers sports for grades 5-8. The school has computers in every classroom and offers tutoring programs for grades 3-8. A new cafeteria and gymnasium are being built now that will improve the facilities immensely.
My children feel welcome in their classrooms. Their teachers make learning fun for them with plays and learning games. The music program is incredible and my children love being a part it.
