On many occasions have found administrators to be less than interested with concerns over the years. Some teachers are great while a few could greatly improve. Disappointing end of the year for 2020 seniors. Once again administration appeared to do very little to show the graduating class any extra recognition or attention while other schools in the district sported signs, did parades and made personal visits to graduates homes. It’s too bad after attending K-12 so little has been done to recognize these student’s efforts.

Bad Axe High School is one of the most influential schools a child could be apart of. Having only a 1,000 student district, the connection of family is very present. Teachers want to see students exceed and work endlessly to make sure their students are ready for their future. Small classes allow for myself and classmates to learn at a rate which where they are comfortable.
What I liked about Bad Axe High School is that despite the disadvantages it had due to being a rural area, it still had a community which try to invest in its programs such as Band and sports, which are great programs by the way, especially for a rural area. However, the school, like most in the United States had general problems with administration and college readiness, along with cliqueness. Still, better than most schools in the area, and I love my school nominally.
