Throughout my years at the school, positive reinforcements, praise, and compassion was shown throughout nearly all of my teachers (some were an exception). Not only did the teachers care about your well-being as a student, but person as well. They were able to recognize when you’re mentally struggling on a certain day, and when you needed a break. Not only were the teachers amazing, but overall district too. Southeast Polk provides so many clubs, organizations, outreach programs, etc. for anyone to be successful. My experience at the school was nothing short of incredible.
Southeast Polk High School offers many college classes for many different fields. It allows students to try new things before they go to college. I have been able to earn free college credit which will hopefully save me time and money. I am able to take classes that challenge me and prepares me for college. Southeast Polk also has amazing sports facilities. We have one of the best high school weight rooms and we are one of the only high schools to have their own cross country course. These facilities allow athletes to maximize their training in whatever sport they participate in.
