I like the community support at Heber Springs. We have so many students, staff and community cheering us at sports and music and art events. Our school has the most spirit in the county. Our school is very focused on the learning just as it is on sports and figuring out your path for life. Our school helps prepare you for the real world. One thing I would change about our school is the cell phone rule. Only because in the real world people have their cell phones and we don't learn anything if we can't work with them.

Heber Springs High School has been a wonderful experience, I was never the best student academically, but with the help of many teachers guiding me into the right direction, I received tons of help. I will forever be thankful for many of the Teachers who helped me become who I am today, and that pushed me to go to college. The Principal was a big help as well, he guided me in the right direction, and motivated me everyday to graduate and further my education.
The administration within Heber Springs School District could use some major improvement. However, the staff is very friendly and quick to help. The students are very respectful and helpful towards each other. I seem to have lost a lot of opportunities to expand my knowledge within Heber, but I feel that Heber isn't to blame for that, rather the American Educational system as a whole.
