Make sure to allocate funding for tutors even for the best students, teachers regularly complain about keeping children focused taking away from valuable teaching time. Facilities are lacking, small overcrowded classrooms, small desks for high school kids, old textbooks +5yrs, not many field trips in a town that has so many educational opportunities. Request a tour during school hours to decide for yourself. No air conditioned lunchroom, limited covered play areas is a concern.
