It is a good little school with great resources made available to the students but due to the small size, there are other aspects in which it lacks slightly.

The biggest thing I liked about scales mound was how helpful the teachers were. If I had a question, they would help me to their best ability without giving me the answer.
We are a small school so we don't have a huge variety of extracurricular activities, but most of the students are involved in at least one. We co-op with different schools for some sports because we don't have enough people, but i think this is a great opportunity to meet new friends and to form bonds with other communities. Parents and the community are very supportive of the extracurriculars, almost the entire community attends sporting events or other events like FFA events.
