The teachers are very friendly, and most truly care about the welfare (intellectual and emotional) of their students. I really wish there were more advanced classes available to underclassmen.

Everyone is very friendly to everybody. We all help each other out especially if you don't know where a class is just ask and they will give you directions. There are lots of clubs and sports though out the year that you can join like FFA, FBLA, Mock trial, etc.. There are different pathways you can try to get on your diploma like medical ,business ,agriculture ,etc... All of the teachers are very good at explaining things and helping you if you need extra help. Also you could have a chance to go to college at Eastern Oregon University. When you go to school here you have the chance to get to know lots of people in this small community.
I loved the homey feel and atmosphere of the la grande school district. I believe that because of the loving nurturing atmosphere in which I learned in this school district, I will be prepared to take on college and advance my learning even further in the future.
