I have been at Ponder since Pre-k, and honestly I wouldn't want to go anywhere else, yes it's a small school but that's the thing, you know everyone in the school, and you always know what's going on. Though Ponder is getting bigger day by day, being at Ponder is a great experience yes, I would love to see more sports or clubs add more classes that would be good for all the students but I know we will get there someday just takes sometime.

You can tell that the staff really cares about each and every student. For one, that has moved around a lot and been to other schools, this is a quality that is difficult to find among other school districts.
I would like to see more students getting involved in school activities. However, Ponder is a great school and I highly recommend it to anyone!
