The teachers spend a lot of time getting to know their students. There is a lot of one on one teaching as well as hands on learning. The class size is about ten to twenty kids, which for me is the perfect amount.

The size is great, with lots of opportunity for assistance. However, the teachers do not always have your best interest and often play favorites. I would like to see teachers with a more objective outlook on academics who are willing to truly help their students.
I wouldn't like to see anything change. I love Guthrie because everyone's very welcoming and kind. All the teachers make sure everyone understands the material and the superintendent and principal know whats best for everyone. No one ever complains about having to go to school because they love it here.
