Great schools to grow up attending! Teachers are wonderful and very knowledgeable. I can't imagine having to go anywhere else! Small classes make learning easy and the staff is always available. Never had to pay for Breakfast or lunch and the food was pretty good!

My experience has pretty great being in this school system is like being in a family. I've been on almost every athletic team and the coaches are great. Even though you barley learn things that prepare you for the ACT all the other class you learn a lot. They also don't prepare you for the outside world in which I think they should.
The staff is great, They really care about the kids, They make sure your kids learn every day but also knows how to make learning fun so that you enjoy coming. Sports are also very good someone always win district or region and always goes to state every year. They really care.
