The number one thing I love about Great Plains is that every day I get to hear about God's word there. I have chapel and religion classes every single day. It's such a comfort to be surrounded by peers and faculty that believe the same things as me and this creates such a comfortable atmosphere. Great Plains is a smaller school and so I am very close with everyone there. It's like we all are a big happy family. Less students also means we have a lot of one on one learning opportunities from the teachers and they know us well enough to know how to help each one of us specifically. One thing that I would like to see change about Great Plains is that because we are a smaller school we don't have as nice of facilities. We have a really nice gym but being a theater person I would really like to see my school get a nice theater and better music equipment. Overall, I really love and appreciate everything my school has done for me.

I loved how I could be having an absolutely awful day, but I could be walking down the hallway and receive a smile from everyone who passed me. The teachers genuinely cared for me and want the absolute best for me. They challenge me, but also offer their guidance throughout the day. Every single day my principal stands outside the school and welcomes every student that walks in with a smile and greeting. I live in South Dakota, but even on -30 degree days you can still find him standing outside ready to greet every student and start everyone's day off with a smile.
Great Plains Lutheran was such a blessing to me. It was a small school centered on Christ, so I got the chance to do so many things from sports, to music, to plays, and lots of other activities. Got to meet people from all over, that shared my faith, because it is a dorm school. The teachers genuinely cared about you and how successful you were. They were fun to have us in class, made every minute fun. I was given guidance when it came to picking a college and applying for colleges and scholarships. They were ready for any question willing to help.
