    Out of all of the high schools in the Flathead Valley, Flathead High School is the greatest option, in my opinion. The staff as a whole are kind, and look out for the students' best interest. There are so many opportunities to take advantage of. Award-winning sports teams, Speech and Debate, Theatre, Science and Math Teams, Book Club, FFA, you name it, you can be a part of it! The International Baccalaureate program offers great opportunity for students to expand their potential and broaden their horizons before college with world standards and values. Though there are a few bad apples in the bunch, I have never seen more a more hard working, team-orientated, friendly student body than I have at Flathead High School. This is a VERY GOOD school to attend.

    Flathead High School provides many opportunities for learning and helps you be involved in the community. The International Baccalaureate program is a great way to push your academics throughout your junior and senior years of high school. Many classes are offered ranging from IB Calculus, IB Biology, IB Theater, and many more. These classes provide the opportunity to test out of some college classes and can give you up to 6 credits at Universities that accept IB credits. This helps students save money in college and is a great reward for pushing themselves in high school. I have taken seven IB classes including two years of English, two years of math, two years of business, and one year of psychology. These classes have helped me prepare for college and the level of thinking and work needed to succeed. Flathead High School offers a wide range of sports and activities for all kinds of people. I have had many good experiences at Flathead High School and there are more to come.
    I really enjoy the overall experience of this high school. The people are accepting of people with all interests, wether the be the arts of sports or academics. It is a great school to create lasting relationships and to open up opportunities that will aid later on in life. I would like to see some changes when it comes to helping out individual student that are struggling because I myself have had some periods where I have struggled and I really did not have as much support to get back on track as I could have. However, this school has given me a great experience and set me up for the next step in life very well.
