I'm very blessed to have been able to attend Colfax-Mingo Schools. My junior year I was in the hospital and out of school for a month. I had very few nights of sleep and a grueling surgery. My teachers were unbelievably understanding. Many visited me in the hospital and they continued to work with me to get my work and tests caught up when returning to school. I feel comfortable going to them for any problems I have with school in general and even personal issues sometimes. Before winter break, our teachers had a surprise flash mob that everyone loved! Our school district as a whole is unbelievably supportive when a family is hurting. 4 months ago, a student's house burnt down, 2 months ago, our nurse's husband died, and just today, a families’ home burnt down with all 4 student attending or recently graduating from the school. In all 3 of these situations, our district and community have come together to give relief and help to those in need. Not a thing I would change.

As a small school, teachers are able to dedicate more time to individual students. Students are more engaged as a result. Sports seem to be a major priority and take priority over other programs such as music and art.
The teachers are very good and will stay late to help or make other accommodations when needed. Even though our school is small, we have a good variety of classes and are offered quite a few college credit courses. Overall, the other students are very supportive and fun to be around.
