I love the small town feel of Colfax high school, how you know everyone and everyone knows you. The teachers are all super nice and dedicated. Everyone at Colfax high school is committed 110% and it’s awesome! Some things that I wish I could change would be I wish we had better food, and I also wish we offered more classes. I know we used to offer psychology and sociology classes and I really wish we still did, I would definitely take them. Another thing I wish my school had was open campus, so we could go home to eat lunch, or go to a fast food place for our 30 minute lunch, or even if the seniors just got a designated spot to eat lunch like the seniors had in the past. Overall these changes would be nice, but even without them Colfax High school is a great school and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!

Colfax High was a great high school to grow up in. Bullying is scarce, the teachers really care about their students, and we learn a lot and have amazing opportunities. I made it through almost a full year of college courses through the offered College in the High School credits that I took advantage of. I learned a lot, not just about general education, but also about life in general.
Colfax high school is filled with students who love what they do and do everything. Most of the students are athletes, scholars, club members, volunteers, musicians, and more. I grew up in the school district and can say I am very grateful for all the teachers that really care about you and want you to succeed. I've received an excellent education including over 20 credits of college courses from them now as a senior in the high school. I also love my peers. I have so many friends, I don't think I can count them all. Colfax High School is a great place to learn and grow!
