    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.

    Flathead High School is a really diverse place with something for everybody. I appreciate the overall care and maturity from the faculty and volunteers that is provided everyday. I'd say 98% of the time my teachers are understanding and are not hesitant to work with me. If there was one thing I would change at FHS, it would be favoritism. At FHS we have the International Baccalaureate program and all the kids that are involved in it are prioritized way more than the Students just completing rigorous core. However, why wouldn't the kids who work harder be more favored? All together, Flathead is an amazing school with an amazing team holding us all together!
    I enjoyed Flathead High School, every teacher I had was well educated in their field, sometimes even with work experience. Everyone is always open for questions, if during, after, or before class. in general the faculty is always ready to help.
    One aspect I think they need to improve on is language classes and their faculty in that specific field. Today, it is very important to be exposed to that, and at least learn about other cultures values and practices. This is not well represented in this school district.
