Festus R-VI School District Reviews
Festus high school takes pride in the education being given. I feel that most of the staff does a decent job of making sure students have the best opportunities available to them. However, I feel that there is a lot to be improved. Many of the staff members are incredibly discriminatory and cause students to feel as though they are not valued as an individual. These individuals are more likely to be held accountable for certain things that other students would not be held to. Diversity is awful because of this. Many students feel as though they have to blend in or be like the others or they will be targeted for anything and everything. Bullying is likely to go unnoticed or be overlooked due to shared views among the bully and staff. Clubs and activities are not doing well. So many clubs are overlooked. Diversity club was probably the most overlooked and judged club in the school. The staff would not allow the club to make announcements or really even make itself known.
The Festus district does not get enough credit for how good they are. I graduated from Festus in 2016 and an an amazing experience that makes me want to visit when there are special events. I was diagnosed with cancer while attending at Festus and the administration truly bent over backwards for me and allowed me to get a quality education even though I could not be in the classroom itself. My heart for the Festus district runs deep and I cannot help but give it the highest rating.
Festus is an amazing school district and always tended to what I, as a student, needed. I always could go to the councilors or any administrator for help. They are very reasonable and understanding with any circumstances you may have.
