  • The teachers and principal are excellent with the kids. Kids are always ranked very high in the standardized test in SD. As a parent, I like the interaction you can have with the teachers and they all know the kids very well. The school does go Pre through 8th grade with extracurricular activities mixed in with the public school. The environment is good to raise your kids to respect each other, the teachers and parents along with a religious understanding. Classrooms are great size and homework load is appropriate for the age in the grade. The middle school prepares them for entrance in high school. Having kids in elementary, middle school and now high school, I can see the difference that the school makes compared to the public school programs. The public school does a good job, this I would say is just a cut above that, that can give the kids a better edge in life.
