The teachers are great! They're some of the kindest souls you can ever meet. They will help you until you understand everything you were once struggling with. The sports here are okay. For most of the sports I do, we are a strong team because of our coaches. But Volleyball at our school is basically everyone for themselves. No one treated it as a team sport and our coaches don't help us be a team. Our coaches have favorites who are the only ones who get to be on varsity. If you're not one of her favorites, you're basically irrelevant. For example: two of our seniors (2020 seniors) didn't get to play varsity AT ALL on SENIOR NIGHT. But it's okay I guess because the coach is also the band/choir teacher and it's all the same there. If you want to be in the musical, you better be one of her favorites or else you aren't going to even be a part of it. So basically, our school is very biased and FULL of favouritism. But otherwise it's a good school.
I loved my high school. They were very good about taking the time they needed to make sure all students were understanding their lesson plans, even if it took more days then the initial plan did. I really appreciated that most teachers were there for more reasons than just a paycheck. You could tell they actually cared about their students and there well being just as a person. I think as a school they could maybe lesson some requirements fo graduate such as the amount of community service hours. It’s 80 hours for the whole 4 years of school. For someone like me who was involved in multiple sports, multiple activities such as choir, and worked a part time job, it was extremely hard to try and find time to do the 80 hours.
I'm very blessed to have been able to attend Colfax-Mingo Schools. My junior year I was in the hospital and out of school for a month. I had very few nights of sleep and a grueling surgery. My teachers were unbelievably understanding. Many visited me in the hospital and they continued to work with me to get my work and tests caught up when returning to school. I feel comfortable going to them for any problems I have with school in general and even personal issues sometimes. Before winter break, our teachers had a surprise flash mob that everyone loved! Our school district as a whole is unbelievably supportive when a family is hurting. 4 months ago, a student's house burnt down, 2 months ago, our nurse's husband died, and just today, a families’ home burnt down with all 4 student attending or recently graduating from the school. In all 3 of these situations, our district and community have come together to give relief and help to those in need. Not a thing I would change.
