Pratum School is one of the smallest schools in the Silver Falls School District with only 80 students, many of them siblings. During recess, you see seventh and eighth graders helping third graders on the basketball court and eight graders having snacks with fourth graders. It’s something you don’t see as often these days in […]

Central Howell School has a Special Draw

There’s something peaceful about Central Howell School. From the veteran teachers and staff to the newest team members and students, everyone seems relaxed and comfortable. Many of the students are the children of former students and others have transferred from larger school districts to be part of the unique rural K-8 school experience. “Most of […]

Victor Point School Shines

Principal Jamie McCarty has worked in education for 18 years, but he says his current job is his most rewarding yet.

Learning Resource Centers offer a little extra help that goes a long way

Eighth grader Ashton Martin is thriving at school thanks to a little extra support from the Scotts Mills Learning Resource Center (LRC). All of the SFSD schools offer LRCs to provide students with a “double dose” of individual and small group learning time to help boost their math, reading and writing skills. Martin first came […]
