I do love my high school. It's easy to get to a first-name level with all of your teachers. This comes in handy when you need help on some homework or studying for a test. I like knowing everyone in high school and maintaining a somewhat good relationship with most of them. Also, it is easy to compete for community scholarships considering about four of the thirty students in a class will also apply. However, some of the faults about going to a small school is the lack of college, or AP classes that are available to sign up for. Also, it is difficult to get recognized by bigger schools for sports or more universal/important scholarships. Besides these small set backs, I have had an amazing time at Calhan High. The teachers are helpful, the students mostly your teammates, and the most of the student body could be your neighbor. I would 100% choose to attend this school again if I had the privilege of redoing high school all over again.

Over all my school isn't the worst, but it does have some things wrong with it. Being a senior, this is the first year that our guidance counselor has been most involved with the senior class and being helpful towards graduation and looking into colleges. Isn't that what we are supposed to do before senior year? I thought our senior year was going to be about looking at college applications, scholarships knowing what college we are going to attend, and knowing that we will be on track to graduate. This year along with past years, a few students had to double up on classes their senior year just to get the requirement to graduate because they didn't know they were short a credit.
Calhan School is a very small school, overall we have pretty good feedback. Being a small school, it depends on who you are, not your talent, which is unfair. Sometimes athletes forget that they are student athletes and not athlete students.
