Caprock High School Reviews

All Categories
The teachers here are very caring, they like to make sure were getting our work inside and outside of school done. The school i come from isn't in the best side of town and a lot of the kids here struggle, some are self-supporting and still manage to come to school. With the teachers we have, they understand our problems so they help us the way they know how to and that's to pass knowledge down. They give us hope for most of our dreams by helping us get to where we want. On the other hand, the teachers are in control of whats going on. Every one of the teachers is required to keep us actively involved, and they do by calling on random students and asking questions about the topic at what might seem random times. The Majority of the time at school i am working on papers, or involved in the class discussion of topics we are going over.
My favorite experience is going to the Pep Rallys, i enjoy those alot mostly the first one of the year, homecoming, and the last one of the year. What makes Caprock unique is that our teachers not only give knowledge through books but they try to put in life lessons as well. I would definitely choose Caprock again if I could because it doesnt feel like just a school, to me Caprock is home.
Caprock High School is perhaps one of the best institutions that prepare their students for further success after graduation. While me not might be the most wealthiest school, we strive to achieve. We don't back down and we never give up.
