I love my high school! Being at Circle High School has allowed me to grow as an individual and find my own way through my high school years. The staff and faculty are amazing, each with their own style of teaching and willingness to help the students.

I have loved my experience at Circle. The people in the school - staff and students - are all extremely helpful and motivate me to be the best version of myself. We are constantly getting new teachers, but that is alright because we continue to get better teachers as the years go on. I have gained a good education from Circle and am excited to see where I can go post-high school.
Circle High School has an incredible community that helps make school, sports, and other activities feel like they are close family and matter to everyone.
