Banks High School is a small school, which is reflected in the limited options of advanced courses or electives. The teachers genuinely care about the students and most students know all of their classmates. The cafeteria food isn't great, but there are some good restaurants within walking distance of the school.

The teachers and staff are the best. I enjoyed several extracurricular activities such as FFA, leadership, and National Honor Society.
It's a great school for those who like close knit company, a great community, and being close with the staff. However the building itself is the only problem I have with it. Sure it has its charms but it is slowly falling apart. Other than that the school has great students and teachers
