Everyone is so friendly here! People know one another and will willingly accept others. It feels like you are more of person in this school rather than another name and number on an attendance sheet. Teachers are willing to help with any questions. Even though the mountains might make it hard to get places during the winter, Cloudcroft does not lack in sports and extra-curricular activities.

I have been attending Cloudcroft schools ever since the fourth grade. With in this time, my experience has been a great one. Teachers have been supportive and so have other parents. I have never had any issues with my teachers and since it is a small school, there is more of a one-on-one relationship between the teachers and students. If I have questions over class work or life events in general, they are always more than happy to help me out at the best of their ability. My teachers/coaches always know if something is bothering me or if I am struggling and do the best that they can to help me improve. All my teachers have always helped me along the way and have given me the knowledge needed in order to become successful in anything that I choose to do. They always encourage me to go above and beyond what is expected. I feel that this is the true role of a teacher because if they were to always shut an individual down, the student would feel that their education no longer serves a purpose. Other parents have even seen potential in my future and have been more than supportive. Some of these parents have even seen higher expectations for me than I have for myself. With having supportive teachers and parents in my school, I have realized that there is a much larger future for me than I would have ever thought.
My favorite part of high school was band. I think it's what made me get out of my shell and it really helped me make a lot of great friends. Athletics were also fun, but sometimes the parents of everyone participating were too competitive. The school itself was great, because there weren't very many people in each class, so everyone was very close.
