I liked that Colby Senior High School was a small school so you knew everyone. It was like a family going to school. Especially since you go to school with the same people for all your life. Also, I liked the clubs and activities at CHS. There was an art club that I really liked and our Student Council was also very strong. Since we had a strong Student Council we had the best dances like homecoming and snowball. Also out homecoming football and spirit week was awesome. The teachers at CHS are all very friendly and know the students by their names. If a student ever needs help they can get help from any teacher before or after school.

I'm a senior at Colby High School. I have attended all four years of my high school career. I've been involved in many activities such as various volunteer groups, sports, and artistic clubs. All of which, have been led by CHS teachers and faculty. The staff is very helpful and understanding of the students and my peers have been extremely supportive here during my time at CHS. We have many useful resources such as a community college a block away which helps significantly. No high school is perfect, but my time at Colby High School is something I'll never forget.
I did not like this school. As a student I found it very hard to get ahead at my school because of the higher positions ruling everything. The school is full of lies and corruption. Also, the school system cares more about funding the superintendent than it cares about actually funding the school. There is hardly any class electives that could prepare you for life. With that being said, I love the student body. We have really stepped up to try and make a difference when we were allowed to.
