I like that Hobbs High School provided free lunch. However, I did not like that Hobbs High School did not provide many resources. As a senior student, I was unable to find help from the counselors to help me with my education such as applying to FAFSA and scholarships. Hobbs High School is not very concerned about their students. The school does not provide many activities to do and that includes clubs. Clubs are the key factor that provides sponsorships and money to the school. The word "school spirit" shows the reputation of the school, allowing students to show their views and participation of their school, Hobbs High School lacked this. Hobbs High school also reached the maximum capacity of students in a building but unfortunately, the school's administration could care less and would rather save money to use on unnecessary things such as the football team that has not won state championships in over 50 years. Hobbs High School lacks many things and should be improved.

I liked that some teachers actually genuinely cared about their students and their futures, however; they don't do well in disciplining students and getting things taken care of. They prioritize the wrong things and push aside very important things such as bullying until it's too late. On another note, while I was a student, I didn't get the opportunities I wished I had known about, because unless you were with the best top students, most information was not posted for you to easily gain access to. You had to ask the right people the right questions in regards to getting opportunities and getting involved in certain clubs. That's not fair for everyone, especially those without the right connections; they should get a chance.
Hobbs High is the only school in Hobbs New Mexico. My experience here overall was a good experience because all my teachers really cared about their students and made me feel important along with other students. Hobbs High was very organized in everything that they did. I was a cheerleader and also a member of the Student Council so I was able to see everything behind the scenes. My coaches would prepare my squad weeks before events and my team from Student Council would plan things weeks before an event or community service that we planned on participating in. The only thing that I did not enjoy at this school was the students. Of course I can not change that but I feel I would add some type of influence program that would help highschool students mature to think more like adults, helping them become respectful to not just teachers but to their classmates and the people they share a school with.
