For the past 3 years I have attended this school I would not consider it the worst, but also not the best. The academics are about average, the teaching is good though there can be a bit of conflicts between some teachers and students. The school itself is always nice and clean due to the janitors we've had working here for a very long time. The staff is very nice but there are others where they are very questionable and hard to understand. I say something that this school severely lacks is the act of treating athletes or students properly when it comes to sports. You have to be very well known in order to get good treatment or have a good opportunity in doing well in a sport. I personally have played multiple sports and i don't get the recognition i feel i deserve due to other players having a higher advantage due to who they are or depending on who they are related to.

My experience at Colusa High School was not too bad, from freshman year to my senior year definitely changed the way I am and view things. School can be stressed out but coming in as a freshmen I was nervous and the teachers and staff help me with the nerves I had. It took about a week then the nerves finally went away. Things I'd like to see change is the bathrooms, they are never cleaned good enough. Also some of the classrooms are old and we need some new desks because they are unbalanced, squeaky and broken.
Colusa High School has provided me with great opportunities and an amazing agenda of what is available. Whether you are interactive or more on the shy side, Colusa has options available. The people who work and manage the school are wonderful while the smiles you see every morning can brighten your own day. The attitudes are nor strict, but you can not walk all over them either. The school is flexible and does have fun social events that keep you wanting more here. The students are friendly and extremely welcoming while looking out for new students.
