I really love Firth High school! I love the amount of students that go here. There are about 54 in my class, so there are enough people that you can still choose different friends, but you also know everyone. It seems like our whole grade, for the most part, is one big friend group. We get through stuff together. I also get a change to know lots of other grades too. Plus, the sports area is nice too. We are a fairly competitive school, and yet almost everyone has a change to be a part of a team, since we don't have tons of people here. We also have lots of fun clubs to participate in, like BPA, Key Club, and FCCLA. The only downer- and thing I would change- is the amount of classes we have available. I know this would be impossible for our school because of the amount of money and students we have, but I would love it if we had plenty of more electives to take, like ballroom dancing, art, choir, drama, cooking, and other classes like that.

Firth High School is very excellent when it comes to extracurricular activities. They have many extracurricular activities that every student can get involved in. It all comes down to the student because they are the one who needs to get themselves involved in the clubs. I think that Firth High School recognizes their athletes more than their clubs, which is wrong in a way because the clubs work just as hard as the athletes do, but all in all Firth High School is pretty amazing!
Firth High School has a strong sense of tradition, belonging, and character. They do lack funds for better programs and opportunities for students.
