My experience going to this high school has not been fun, granted I’ve met some good friends here it’s educational system is not the best. I’m almost done with school here, and I wish my final day would get here already.

I liked to closeness of our teachers and students. We all work together and help each other out. However, I keep losing departments and don't have near as many options for specific classes as we used to.
I attended Hot Springs from 7th grade through my senior year of high school for 2-3 classes to participate in a school sport(golf in middle school and soccer in high school). Overall, the academics aren't tremendously challenging, but my best experience was within the fine arts department, particularly band and choir. These programs were the ones within the school that I felt did their job best, even due to low funding.
