Some teachers are great, the others are awful. There's not really an in between. The school is old and serves as a hazard to the students, yet the town refuses to pass a law allowing a new school to be built because they're afraid of taxes. A kid literally got hit in the head with a ceiling panel two days ago, yet I doubt no one will care enough to realize that a new school is necessary. You can have success at this school, but you have to actively want it.

I love the opportunities to take classes that will benefit my future career. The resources provided by the school allow us to use technology to enhance our learning. However, the high school itself is very old and run down. The food provided by the school is mediocre at best, but the lunch ladies are very friendly. Overall, my experience at Alpine High School has been a very pleasant one to say the least.
Being a small school has pro's and con's. Pro's: students can be involved in as many extracurriculars as they please. The small school ensures small classes, which means personal time with teachers. Cons: the school lacks funds, so is in poor shape. Cafeteria often runs out of food, students often have to provide supplies. Education takes the backseat to sports and other extracurriculars. Students are discouraged from attending big colleges, so receive little to no help for out of state schools. Test scores are more important than learning.
