I enjoy the fact that our school is a rather small, tight-knit community. There are no strangers, and you are able to speak one on one with the teachers. In a small school like Houlton, it is easy to get help when needed.
However, I would like to see more clubs available. Sports is a very big subject in our school, but there are also many kids who love the arts. It would be wonderful if there were more art clubs for those who are not as active in sports.

It was a very good school, they were very straight forward with their rules and wanted every student graduate with satisfaction. They wanted their students to leave knowing all the knowledge we could handle. The teachers were amazing, they did all they could to help a student understand what they were teaching. They would take the time out of their day to stay after school to help any student in need.
I quite enjoyed my time learning at the school. Though I'd wished that courses were more varied such as more than two languages, but at least they were the most common and practical to learn.
