"Overall I think that Menard Schools are one of the best schools that I have seen so far. We need more people to move to this school because it is not a place where you have to worry about gangs or drive by shootings or drugs. Our school staff does a pretty good job of keeping everything under control, Our principal of our elementary junior high is the best I have ever seen. People in this little town are very friendly and always willing to help. It is a benefit to live in Menard. I have lived here for about 8 years. Come join us."
