Hastings area school district is a awesome place to receive a education. The teachers and administration are awesome and help us prepare for the future. There are so many opportunities at Hastings including sports, clubs, and other activities to be involved in. There is a awesome music and CTE department. I was part of the band where I had a awesome time during marching and concert season. I was also a member of the FFA chapter and agriculture program. I felt so prepared for future with these experiences and also with the AP courses I took. I highly recommend this school district to anyone.

Overall I felt like my entire experience in school wasn't actually based on learning, I feel like us students were just "money makers", and by the time I graduated the school system was greedily trying to get bonds to pass. And it felt like the teachers just gave into that idea and were just trying to get parents to join in on the idea of using bonds, and the parents were totally into it.
