I liked that the teachers were invested in their students and wanted to see them succeed so there was help whenever you needed it. I also liked that their were a lot of different clubs and organizations that you could join. I thrive in small communities so the experience of going there was one of the best for me.

I would not choose to go to Estes park high school again, as many of the students and even some teachers are rude and pompous. There is an attitude of entitlement and superiority that is only fueled by the office staff among the athletically involved strident body. I would say I most certainly poses an outstanding group of piers that truly understand me, my experience is not ideal, but most certainly could be worse.
Estes park has a rather high level of extracurricular activities available to us, there is fine variety presented to the students, but the quality is rather lacking. A school of our size and funding has neither the resources nor the participation rates to create a truly thriving club atmosphere, but we have certainly isn't half bad.
