Bliss Schools

At Bliss High School, more than half of the students take digital learning courses allowing connectivity that wasn't available in the past.

Bliss Schools Supertendent Kevin Lancaster says, "It just allows us to expand our curriculum."

With approximately 35 students, Lancaster says they're limited in the number of teachers and course offerings.

"We just discovered that our teachers that are history certified, are not highly qualified to teach government so we have 11 kids taking a government class so in that same classroom we have a government teacher that is trying to insist to insure all 11 kids can get through the online situation."

At the elementary school level, fifth grade students are applying knowledge they learn at school into the real world, in a program called trout in the classroom.

Students record data for five months and then celebrate at the end with a fishing day.

Last year, elementary teacher Stephanie Caudill lost her baby to congenital heart disease.

As a response, the students began researching and raised more than $1,400 in fundraising efforts to raise awareness about the disease.

"Looked up statistics and facts and sent them because we want to take that information and add to the gift bags we're making."

Bliss also needs your help to make the school more visible to passing drivers.

They're looking to see if anyone would be interested in donating funding to a reader board.

"We have a good little secret here in Bliss, there are good things that happen here for the kids and we're pretty proud of what we have."

Next week, Brittany will take a look at Valley High School.
