Ponca Public Schools Reviews

I think that Ponca Public Schools is one of the best schools that I have ever been to. I believe that this school district is one of the best because of the extra-curricular activities that are provided by this school. I am involved in the Ponca High School Pep band, it is the best feeling in the world to go to a game that Ponca is involved in whether the game be Football, basketball, or Volleyball, and to see how many people support this school.

I am a High School senior and through my years at Ponca High School, Ponca Ne I have seen a lot and learned a lot and what I liked about ponca is that we are a small school and our community really supports us. I grew up knowing my classmates in cases they were my neighbors. Our community is very close and I think that being in a small town helped that a lot. With being a small school we are very tight community and school but with that comes problem at Ponca it seems like if you don't play sports or your parents don't have the right last name you are an outcast. I think if we were a bigger school we wouldn't have that problem that people wouldn't care what you did because they had their own lives to matter about.
