Numerous students have praised the teachers at this school for their exceptional skills and unwavering support. Not only are they knowledgeable and helpful, but they also demonstrate commendable friendliness and a deep commitment to the well-being of LGBTQIA+ students. As a result, they have created an inclusive environment that promotes diversity and fosters a sense of belonging among all students, regardless of their backgrounds. It is truly commendable to witness educators who genuinely care about their students and are dedicated to building a harmonious and sustainable community. However, it is important to note that while the school as a whole is commendable, some students may not be LGBTQIA+ friendly.
My experience at this high school has been okay. I enjoy the teachers and facilities, but I do not believe they prepare you well for secondary education. It works well for students who are already intelligent and self starters, but I do not believe they do much to help those with issues. This school teaches to tests, not to students.
This school has excellent teachers and academics. Although, because it is such a small school, the class selections are limited, and many high-level classes must be taken online. Also due to its small size, the extracurriculars are limited, although they are of high quality. Technologically speaking the school is getting more up-to-date, but its still lacking in the fact that most people don't know how to use much of the technology. The food and atmosphere are slightly above average in my eyes, both being slightly better than previous schools I've been.
What I loved about Hot Springs County High School is that it provides the best enviornment for learning and gives so many oportunities to make it fun!
I think all of the parents know how to raise their children and want the best for them. Since this is such a tiny community most parents want success for all of the kids in Thermopolis.
The academics is very well managed here. The teachers make sure to encourage students to try new things, leave their confort zones, and they make sure that there are exciting, and important classes available.
This school includes lots of student involvement, there are clubs/ extra curricular activities available for all different preferences teens might have.
The athletic department of my school is superior. Lots of students chose to participate, and many are successful. However, there are other options available for kids who chose not to participate in an athletic sport. There are competitive opportunities available for almost everyone. There is a place for all different people, the robotics team, drama club, spanish club, and more.
If I had to choose to do high school in my high school all over again, I would not. My high school experience has been quite the roller coaster, you could say that I have had my fair share of highs and lows. I would not do it again because of the trials I was given during this time of my life, although I would not change one thing about my experiences. Because of the burdens I carried through high school, I learned life changing lessons. Because of them, I have been able to identify and appreciate blessings which are sent my way.
There are a lot of vocational activities offered, with enough teachers to easily cover them all. Scheduling is fairly simple for the students, not so much for the people who actually have to organize it. If you want to change classes, the possibility of getting a different one that you like is not always high. Workload is not too bad, as long as you don't have very many Honors or college level classes.
There are sports available all year. Drama and speech and debate are highly encouraged here. There are a few other activities to add to the variety.
Teachers work at helping their kids learn the subject. Some are better than others, some care less than others.
Bullying is watched and strongly discouraged. Security isn't talked about a lot, but it's still important here. There isn't a school nurse, but lots of teachers know what to do to help kids. If someone needs something, there are resources available everywhere.
high school is high school when you get right down to it
more options would be nice. Thanks alot mrs. obama. this one is on you
You are treated like an adult, the punishments go accordingly. no kid punishments
The teachers are very easy to get along with. I really dont have a problem with any of them.
