Laurens-Marathon was an excellent school, especially in its prime. Unfortunately when it went through an administrative blunder several years ago, students, parents, some teachers, and the community itself jumped ship and gave up on the school. After that the class sizes slowly got smaller and the school couldn't keep all of its faculty. Lots of higher level and special classes stopped being provided. When we finally got to the point where the classes coming into the high school would have been getting bigger, a local school-district that we were working with stopped doing so and very shortly after, the high school shut down. I had the pleasure of being the last valedictorian from the class. My only hope is that the elementary and middle school part stay together for many years to come.

The teachers have a very close relationship with their students, but often times favoritism is seen. I also think the whole "saving the school" thing is impairing students will to learn.
I often times consider going to a bigger school, with more competition and opportunities.
