I always loved this school. All the facility members are easy to talk to and help you out in almost anyway you need it. I have been at this school ever since the beginning. I started in Pre-school and now in the middle of my senior year. My grades have been doing excellent and I am still having a lot of fun. The best time of the school year is homecoming week. You get to dress up each day of the week, and on that Friday, we have Spirit games. Spirit games are little games that student council and teachers put together for 9-12 to compete end. The grade with the highest score at the end wins the spirit stick. Although my grade never won the spirit stick, we all still had a blast and came closer together as a class.
I had the chance to leave this school and go to another one for my senior year, but this school was where it all started and I want to finish it here. I have so many memories here and . I'll never want to give it up.

So far my experience at my school has been overall positive my favorite experiences have been with FFA. Last year my FFA chapter hosted a District Review Night while there I was able to meet people not only from my community, but also from other schools. Thanks to FFA I have also been to leadership contests which has helped make me a more effective communicator.
I believe at my school most teachers work hard to help their students excel in the classroom. Our math teacher is always available before school to help students with assignments. Our agriculture teacher is always willing to teach us life skills. Our physics teacher is always willing to help students out with physics problems.
