I would greatly improve our diversity because I personally think our district is pretty ignorant when it comes to diversity issues. We also need to learn more about diverse people and put it in our curriculum more and have more ethnic studies. Some other problems include our unhealthy and grotesque food, our bathrooms do not work well, we do not have enough places to sit outside, and our some of our teachers are very poor but the school district just simply does not care. The school district also does not listen to students nor teachers enough and does not take anyone seriously. Our school district is not motivated nor inspired enough to work on serious issues such as black lives matter, the teachers are too worried feeling sorry for themselves and not concerned enough about the students. This is what I have to say. Thank you!

I love the family feel. We grow up with each other, and we get to see each other grow and mature. We basically all know each other because we are a small town, and that has its advantages and disadvantages. Our school district does have "cliques" and I wish it didn't and we could all get along. There is some bullying that is not necessary. Overall, I think the kindness towards others and the feeling of us all belonging needs to change for the better.
I love how small the district is, allowing four elementary schools to flow into one junior high, then one high school really allows the district to monitor its schools closely. Therefore as a student I feel all the staff in the district are truly focusing on my needs, because there is only one high school they can focus on. As a small school it's easier to stay connected with teachers and staff as well.
