My experience at Underwood High School has been excellent. Not only have they been awarded top 10 schools in the nation for 2017, but they have also been in 2018. It's a small community that has really come together in support of the school and students achievements. The teachers and staff are very well liked and bring a fun learning atmosphere to the classroom. Underwood High School is a great academic and athletic school, to say the least.
My time in school has been very fun and educational. I feel that I have learned a lot, not just in school but in life. I have made many unbreakable friendships that will last me a lifetime. My teachers at Underwood were outstanding, and each teacher taught me something different.
