I went to school in this district from my elementary school days all the way up through my High School years. While I had a handful of teachers who where very impactful in my life the overall experience was mixed. The school did not offer many clubs to help greater learning, but very heavily focused on sports which is a positive in some aspects, but due to the focus suffers in other respects. The arts, and speech programs suffered heavily, and it showed. I wish we could of had better funding for essentials and better computer learning for things such as, computer engineering and programming.

Teachers are great and genuinely care about their students. They go above and beyond to dedicate their time to benefit students’ education. The staff is also incredible with their concern for safety. In addition, they contribute to making the students feel welcome and comfortable.
Some teachers do not care about students or their job. They don’t put a lot of effort into making sure we actually learn and succeed. I also feel that the students had a lack of repsect and were lazy due to the lack of discipline in school. Not a lot of people participating in clubs, there aren’t very many. When it comes to athletics many students including myself have had bad expierences with the program and the teachers which wasn’t very fun. One of the upsides to the school district that I have noticed personally is that I have never encountered a bully situation or witnessed one.
