I love my school! I am involved in National Honor Society and the Peer Mentoring program and through it I have met amazing people and have learned how to work well with others and expand my academic understanding altogether. Though I have had a few problems with some teachers when it comes to my understanding of the curriculum, in general, each department has a couple of exceptional teachers who are willing to help students from other classes besides their own.
I love Festus, especially their band program! They have fantastic faculty and wonderful programs for students of all types.
Festus High School helped prepare me for my future. They offer alot to students to prepare for college. Counselors are always available if needed. The school offers opportunities for students to speak with different colleges throughout the senior year. Festus High school provides informational meetings regarding preparing for college from the start of freshman year. Festus offers many dual credit college courses through different colleges to get a good start. Festus School provides students with ideas and assistance for many different community services . I was able to play JV and Varsity softball for 3 years. I was. Varsity cheerleader for 3 years. Overall a great school to be a part of. I completed different community service with my team mates to help the community.
