  • I graduated in 1963 ( last class from the old school in Saratoga). Things change - but - the teacher were always helpful. My children went to larger schools. There are more problems in larger schools - in small schools students - students

  • I went to this school and all I did was fail they don't give enough one on one time like they should. Some of the teachers you can try to get help from and they would tell you to go sit down. You want your students to go somewhere how are they going to if you don't help them.
