Loved that it is a small town with small classes for learning.
Great basketball program for both boys and girls.
Love the four day week schedule.
They have a outstanding rodeo club program for the students.
Teachers and facility understand the kids that come in from the rural community.
Wish that the lunch program was better and that there where more class choices for seniors.
Faith High School could use a better bus for there athletic program,
along with better mobile units that offer a better variety of updated classes.

The School's staff is super involved within each students day to day learning experience. The attention each student gets is incredible. It may go with having a small school, but, this being my second high school, the involvement at Faith High School is considerably better than Lyman High. The atmosphere is also friendlier. Everyone here shares a common goal to become a better person, teachers work with students to achieve instead of battling them. I would give Faith High a 5-star rating based on the teaching and administrative staff. They make the best possible work with what they have. The new school has accommodated them well. While the new school is a nice facility, the gym area, extra curricular equipment, and lack of certain facilities is a hinder. They lack a music program completely and also are in need of a track. Well, for that matter, a hundred 120 yards (counting the end-zone, 10 yards each) would be appreciated for the football field. The gym, old warped tile is slick from chemical released on the floor from a fire extinguisher, seating is very limited, tiles are gone and cracked, and the scoreboard barely lights. They must use the city community center for a gym in varsity sports because the school's gym lacks quality, seating, and size. The gym remained standing while the school was condemned in years past. The quality of equipment and facilities is the where the two stars are missing.
Being a very small town, it is difficult for our high school to fund a variety of after-school programs, and so options-wise there isn't much for extracurriculars, especially for arts/music/etc--these are mostly done on the student's own time, not through the school. There is a yearly play that is put on, and also an Oral Interpretation group which has done well in competition in recent years. If you are into sports, the programs we do have (basketball, volleyball, football, cross-country running, track and field) are very enjoyable--good coaches, lots of opportunities to play and practice, and being such a small school one is guaranteed a spot on the team--just make sure you work hard! As far as starting groups go, funding is difficult to find so going through the school is not always fruitful.
