One of the things I really appreciate about my school is it's a safe place to talk about God. My school has a thing called a God bubble and we don't have to worry about bad things happening.
been in the top 3 for the last 3 years
All they have is FFA, basketball and track. If any one else is involved in something else it is not through the school. Like Upward Bound or Scouts or other sports.
Most are there cause they want to be. Others want to be in a bigger place. But for the most of all they are all concerned fire the children.
Small classes that helps the kids be successful. All the kids know everyone from PreK to 12. But at the same time everyone knows everything that is going on. Personally or school.
Lots of chicken nuggets, steak fingers, foods that are quick cooked.
There are no police at the school but we are small and do not have problems. The school nurse is the secretary who will take a temp. or give a band aid. We do have fire/tornado/intruder drills frequently. In general the school is safe.
Basketball is about all that is important to the community. They have track but if you want to participate you have to practice on your own because there is no equipment for it.
very little parental involvement, building are old but well kept, busing is good, guidance counselor is mediocre, college prep resources is lacking.
Dress codes, bullying, and attendance is well taken care of. There is not PTA because they seem to not want parent involvement. It is a small school in a small community where everyone knows everyone else's business.
Somewhat clicky, lots of double standards. Not much to do if you aren't a "jock" or in FFA.
No problem with ethnic/racial diversity. Some with sexual orientation. If you aren't in the "in" crowd there are a lot of double standards. Lots of hometown people as students so the "in" crowd is born & bred.
Most are adequate but there are a few that don't seem to get their "message" across to enable students to understand.
Few clubs, sports, organizations, etc. Same people get the same elected positions. Hard to fit in if not raised in the community
Sports are more important than academics. Not a wide selection of classes to choose from. No HONOR classes.
Dress code, discipline, controversial policies, etc. really depend on who you are. I just do as I am told and mind my own business.
Very small rural school. Very few clubs/activities, because of the size there are very few "friends" that have the same interest, sports is my important than academics.
