Horseshoe Bend Middle/Senior High School Reviews

With only 70 students in the entire high school, Horseshoe Bend has a very small town feel. The town itself is set into a small valley and is surrounded by the beautiful Payette River. Some benefits of going to HSB are that you know everyone in the school and can make many friends very quickly, can be more effective in making a change or being heard than in a larger school, and have more one on one time with your teachers. Sports are a huge part of the culture, and it is very easy to become involved with them. However, a downside to HSB is that everyone knows everything about everyone else; privacy is very hard to achieve. There also aren't as many opportunities for students in areas such as clubs and activities or through academic means. Overall, however, I feel like Horseshoe Bend is a safe place with a very low bullying record, and although the school may not be exposed to as many opportunities as a bigger school would, the school culture is very positive and family-like!

The teachers at Horseshoe Bend High all have very different teaching styles, but I think that benefits the students. They are very good at communicating about grades, assignments, and projects. They also have a very good understanding of what they are teaching and teach it well.
I have had a very great experience at this school. My favorite experiences to come from this school are the sporting events, they are always really wild and fun. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over again because I have enjoyed my years here and being in a small school has provided me with a large support system.
