Small school where it was easy to make friends and get involved in the community. Teachers were always more than willing to put in the extra effort to help you pass. All the student organizations work hard to get kids involved and keep the school fun!

There are a lot of things I like about the school district one of them is the teachers. All of the teachers are very nice and they will always help you if you are struggling with something. One thing I think could be changes in the school district would probably bullying. There are a few people in the school that get bullied and the people that do it to them usually get in trouble but sometimes that is not enough. I think we need to talk about bullying more and what it does to people.
I mean I feel like the school really focused on only a select few students leaving some students with untapped potential. I was one of the students that the school really focused on, and I just wish every student could really get that experience too.
