My high school experience has been okay. I'm involved in volleyball, dance, and cheer. Therefore, I attend all the basketball, football, baseball, softball,drama, and track events. That is why I can tell you that this school does not get enough support/attendance from our parents, staff, and community. If we would get the outside support we deserve, my high school experience would be amazing. Because when people do come, it's absolutely the most fun!
My experience at American Falls High School has been amazing. Even as a freshman, everyone made me feel welcome, including the teachers, staff and other students. They try their best to have everyone involved, no matter the activity. Now that I am a senior, I do my best to not only be involved as much as possible but to also have everyone else around me involved, to get a better high school experience. I love the teachers here, and they will be on the things I will miss most about high school. All of our sports and clubs are diverse, but we are all so supportive of each other. Our school is very united, and I am glad I have had the opportunity to spend my high school career here.
