I like Britton-Hecla High School because it is a very friendly environment where everyone knows each other. The teachers are very nice, supportive, and you are really able to joke around with them and talk about pretty much anything.

Although some of the coaches don't have the best fit, it is nice how everyone can get an opportunity to do whatever they wish. They are backed b parents and community members who genuinely care about the well-being of the students and the programs themselves.
My school has received an amazing amount of financial support from our small community and has put fitness facilities at a pedestal. We proudly have the best arena and track in our area. We have an excellent exercise facility and weight room with new machines and weights. Yet, many of the students, like myself, find the accessibility lacking. Open gyms are infrequent and multiple times during the week an adult cannot be found to supervise so kids are sent home after trying to spend time improving their fitness. This is an extremely frustrating topic for high school students as we are constantly being preached to spend more time in our facilities. Our athletic facilities are amazing and we feel blessed to have them, but not being able to use them is a topic worth consideration.
