This is a small school, which will no doubt give you many great experiences. I'm close with my class, and have experienced competitive BINGO games, girls yanking their up past their belly button, and a guy getting his half his left eyebrow torn off. The small class has given me a lot of joy and fond memories that will stick with me for a long time, to say the least. However, it IS a small school. Because of how small it is, there are no AP classes, only duel-credit. Duel credit classes are nice, but do not give as much challenge or preparation for college as AP. There are also very few activities outside of sports, four can be named off the top of my head, two of which are not pleasant to think of. While this school has better opportunities than most Class B schools, it still has very many opportunities, period.
There aren't many(if at all) organizations after school because of sports. Since more than half of the student population is in sports, the only large areas provided(the gyms at both high school and elementary) are taken by the teams and no one would be able to attend club or organization meetings. Even the play stage is in a gym, where practices are already held and both parties would be a distraction to one another.
