Because we are a small state, the schools here are close with the administration in the district and also with political leaders. So problems can get tackled in a very quick manner. Parents should look for the extra services schools provide to see what would be a good fit for your child. Call the school and ask for a tour. Look around. What is the environment like? That can give you peace of mind.
