Since it is a smaller school, I have been able to participate in 3 varsity sports every year and be involved in many organizations and have been an officer for many of them. I think the smaller class sizes allow for better education as well.
This is a great small town school. I grew up with everyone that I graduated with and enjoyed it. The teachers were great, like parents away from home. The school's community has defiantly impacted my life in a positive way and I love returning to support with school events.
