Falls Secondary School Reviews
I like Falls High as a school, a lot. I've made so many friends here and it feels like home to me. Some of the teachers that I've had here will have a huge impact on my future. But the school is small and underfunded. I am a member of Student Council and we struggle to get students involved in activities. The classes are challenging in some ways but only go so far. As a junior, I had to take courses with college credit, because I had completed all the other honors classes offered. Falls High has been a good school to me for the past decade, but I have always wondered if I was missing out on important academic opportunities and challenges.
I liked how well the school prepared us for the switch to college or a trade school but there was a lot of bullying that the school didn't deal with when I told them about it. I felt like they could have done more for that. I believe the biggest change they need is that they need more people to help out the students who are behind instead of pushing them forward or holding them back, no matter the grade.
Overall, the teachers are amazing! With the exception of some teachers having a hard time adjusting to students needs, mostly every teacher is open to new teaching methods and participates in teacher workshops during the school year AND summer time. The teachers have dedicated their lives to teaching kids and making a difference in their lives. Some teachers double as a coach for the many sports that FHS offers or an instructor for the many clubs. The teachers go above and beyond to make sure that students who struggle with learning or struggle with a tough home situation, always have a good and knowledgeable time at school. Some teachers that deffinatly deserve some kind of an award would be Katie Hammers, Alex Ringhoffer, Rachel Amdahl, and Charlie Anderson.
