At Anoka I wasn't very involved at first but there was always teachers and counselors who encouraged us to get involved. I loved how they encouraged us to step out of comfort zone and try new things. I ended up joining cheer and theatre because of this (I know weird combo). It was one of the best decisions I made. I made a lot friends in those programs and stepped out of my box. This helped my coping with high school a lot. For the future I hope to see more diversity and seeing them get out of their comfort zone and their comfort groups. It would be great to see everyone involved in one way or another. I think there should be more college ready classes and more classes about dealing with things in the future, like balancing a checkbook or how to run a household or something. I just know that the futures in great hands either way.

I really do believe this is an amazing school. I've had incredible teachers and there truly is a place for everyone. Anoka family is the real deal. My biggest complaint is the building that we attend school / how funds are distributed. Our school is falling apart and we have no where close to the amount of space we need for the number of people we have. There's a section of our classrooms where in the winter the temperature gets down to 61 F. The music department, who does a ton of events within the high school and the community has terrible classroom space and doesn't get the funding that our sport teams seem to get each year. This also is an issue since out middle school is an arts based school. But, what "music kid" doesn't want to see the community she loves get the attention it deserves. Aside from the issues of the dollar, the community within the school is a place I love to call home.
While at Anoka High School, my experience was fairly average. I really liked the teachers I had and was a fan of the majority of the classes that I took. However, after sophomore year it became difficult to find classes that I was actually interested in, and that seemed to be the case for a lot of the people that I talked to. As for sports, they were okay, but some of the coaching staff was questionable.
