I love that the teachers are so helpful. However, I feel that the administration lacks as they do not support the kids and teachers when we really see the problems first hand. Everyone is mostly kind to one another.

I love going to Colfax-Mingo Schools. I have been going here my whole life and love everything about it from the teachers to the town to the community. Going to a small school is great because you know everyone, can always play the sport you are interested in and can have a close relationship with teachers and staff.
My experience at Colfax- Mingo has been a roller coaster of events, the students and all of the staff are always amazing. At Colfax I never felt alone, there was always someone there for me weather it was help with my studies or life advice.
