I haven't been to many other schools so my opinion may not be what it would if I'd seen any other schools. It seems that communication between teachers (across grades) about how certain students learn is minute or non-existent this makes getting students to learn about a subject difficult. I've found that most classes are uninteresting, but I have noticed that I (in the classes I am in) have been one the few students so uninterested in what is being taught that they can hardly do their work. This is an issue likely caused by the teachers' resources, the way teachers must teach, and teachers themselves. The electives I've had (band and choir) have been very fun and made up for my disliking of the school for the last 2 years, but this year has been particularly boring, and boredom is a very degrading thing. As a student I feel like my emotions and opinions do not matter, and thus that I, as a person, do not matter.
I loved my time here in Sallisaw Public School System! My cousins and everyone on that side of my family talk so bad about sallisaw saying that it's only for rich people but you just have to take the opportunities that's given to them. I've loved all my teachers. It's such a great school, there are so many great opportunities that a student can get involved with.
