I liked the sense of community in North Platte Public Schools, as well as the excellence of the arts programs there. This includes the Music Program (our Marching Band, Orchestra, and Choir are all excellent), the Journalism Program, the Art Program, Speech and Debate, Theater, and the yearly Musical. Some things I would like to see change include: the pre-conceived notions of student's capabilities based upon their last names, the intense focus and unfair division of funds to the sports programs (and not even all sports), nicer laptops for students to use, improved funding in non-sport related extracurricular activities, improved counseling resources for students, improved mental health awareness and resources for students, a specific program implemented to help troubled youth, more college readiness programs/courses offered, change in the block schedule so kids can take more classes.

I feel like its a great school great environment but maybe we could focus more about real life knowledge instead of things we probably won't really use for the future. We have devices now that help us complete day to day tasks, but I guess it is useful not relieing on something also I think we could make a better program to fit every kids needs. To fit every kids needs we would need a lot of people getting involved because each kid is unique and special in society though I feel us kids are not really treated as individuals with our own personalities. Instead of being individuals we are grouped up and taught the same things, treated the same way, and just in general respected the same way because of our generation and our society. I just believe we can mame a difference. Thank you for your time I could go on but I would be rambling.
Overall the school spends way to much time with the sports and doesn’t give any other extra cuticular activities time or money. Too many students in each class. Not a lot of one on one time with the teachers. Each class is 90 minutes long without a break since certain students got in trouble making it to where the whole school wasn’t aloud a break. Felt like a prison at some times. We are locked in the cafeteria during lunch. They have the stairs blocked off and you can’t leave the area. There are some good things. Certain teachers take the time to help you and pay attention to all of their students. Other teachers focus on the athletic students that are involved in sports, mainly because the teachers are also the coaches.
