As I have rated my experience as "Very Good," it is evident in a small community that what you put in, you receive. I participate in a range of clubs, attend local sporting or ASB hosted events, and am in a sport myself. I do well in school and am constantly seeking opportunities to enrich myself in preparation for life outside my snowglobe of relaxation. Though there may not be as many academic class offerings as larger public schools, what is offered is more than you might anticipate, readily available to the influx of students with unique views.

Over the past four years, I have been involved in the arts offered at my high school and have been able to achieve my personal education goals. Our school allows students to take college courses within the high school without having to attend a college, however able to receive a college life(almost) experience. If I had to critique one small thing, it would be that the Arts should have more funding. Arts teaches more than sports do and should get more recognition.
I like Ephrata High School because they give us the opportunity to do better and help us be successful. When I need help the teachers are always willing to help me and help me understand what I keep on messing up with such as reviewing test and seeing what mistakes I am making. Their always making sure that I am doing good and that its okay to make mistakes. Also when a student needs help they can go to the library and get help from other students and its helpful when you don't get something and they teach you and you start to understand better and get good tests and grades. Something I would like to see change is making sure that every student gets the help they need and to see students that need help to ask their teachers for help instead of not doing anything about it.
