Fosston Public School District Reviews

3 reviews
I believe that throughout my high school career that the faculty/staff worked hard for its students. I was always pushed to do my best and I was challenged in the classes I decided to take as well as the courses that were mandatory. My education was excellent but social aspects were harder for me. Otherwise sports are offered which created teamwork within the school itself. I do think however that our school board within our town does not think of the students and is currently making decisions that are not in the best interests for the education of the students. Even though I am leaving the fosston school district. I still care and want whats best for the students to come.

During my time in the Fosston School district I had so much support from my many teachers. This district is just small enough where you can have as much one on one with your teacher as you want. This really helped me achieve my academic goals. Overall this school has a very accepting environment, I loved that you could walk up to any one of your classmates or teachers and be able to start a conversation. The fosston school district also does a great job in their efforts to assure that each day their students walk away with more knowledge than they came with.
I like how small the class size are. You get to have a better connection with your teachers and it is easier to communicate with them.
