My overall experience with Colby High School is very good in my opinion. I wouldn't say it's excellent, because it has its flaws, but it isn't terrible either. The teachers are very good. They connect with their students and teach the curriculum very well. We students learn everything needed for college. Our technology, however, isn't very fast. We have computers that take up to 30 minutes to turn on, and they are older too. The food at Colby High School is average, and we don't have a great deal of diversity either, but overall, my experience has been very good.

It was an awesome school with a great music program. The music teacher goes way above and beyond expectations. The parents and other staff get involved in it. The sports programs area excellent. Basketball and Cross Country and Track are all sports I participated in. The FFA program was fantastic. I was able to participate at the National Level and got to be really involved. The principal was very approachable and kind. She helped me with any problems that I had.
My school's teachers keep the students engaged in the learning process. And actually can trick us into learning more than we ever thought we could. If we have a question, the teachers are always able to explain. I have one teacher who answers every single one of my questions, and honestly I ask probably about 12 daily even if it doesn't pertain to the assignment or topic, and she doesn't get annoyed with it like some teachers may. The grading consistency is a little wary but most of the teachers grade fairly based on what was turned in.
