Ever since attending Farrell, I have taken notice that this school does not really care for its students. Its the same thing every single day. The classes are regularly disrupted by disrespectful students, in which the other students aren't getting a fair education.

My high school is greatly associated with sports. We have won many regional and state championships through out the years. We are best known for football, girl's volleyball, girl's basketball, and boy's basketball. The past couple of years, the teams have become smaller and have received less fan support. I believe this is due to the school's academic decline. I think the only reason why the school is still open is because of the accomplishments our sports teams. The athletic facilities are very nice and are always being upgraded.
There are a number of clubs and sports options. Most people choose sports. They are committed in that area and they like playing. Most clubs don't really plan or do anything besides add to their membership list.
