My high school experience was like what everyone said it would be, it was dramatic and exciting. The classes I took were amazing like all the self-picked classes, but some of the teaching styles were odd and hard to follow. I will be taking mostly college classes the coming year and some of the classes I took prier didn't quite get me ready for the more complex classes. I had to take it upon myself to fill in all the blanks some of my teachers didn't fill to get me ready. But my overall high school experience couldn't have been any better for me.

Excellent if you like sports, but that's basically any high school. Fine arts programs don't get much priority but the teachers genuinely care about the success of their students.
Halstead is a small town with lots of support for the schools. The teachers and administrators have given me lots of support and have helped prepare me to transition to college. Halstead offers the standard sports (football, basketball, track, baseball, etc) and has several clubs/organizations to belong too, so there is something for everyone.
