La Crescent-Hokah High School Reviews
It is a fine school to go to. The class sizes are manageable. Most teachers are very friendly and there to help you as a student. They are a fairly well managed school. They just did construction to expand and advance classrooms for industrial technology, art, science, and family and consumer science. There is room for more advanced level classes. There are also problems with bullying, racism, and sexism in the student body, but they are fairly minimal. All in all, La Crescent-Hokah High School is a fine and growing school that is working through some problems.
At La Crescent High school, there were definitely its ups and downs. To start off, La Crescent is a small community and everybody knows everybody. By saying that, if a teacher messes up and doesn't do his/her job right for one students, everyone will know about that. The teachers need to understand that all their students learn differently and they can't just keep doing the same teaching style for years on end. But something I do enjoy about my school would be the size. We all grew to know each other and all the students can have a connection with the teachers. Overall, La Crescent High School, along with every other high school, has its ups and downs.
My personal high school experience has been tolerable. I feel as if I am not challenged enough when I take regular required courses. I wish there were more advanced placement options that would help me prepare for college. Most of the teachers do not act as if they care about their students or if they pass their classes. It would be nice if the teachers cared and tried to help their students. Since we live in rural Minnesota, there is not a lot of diversity in our school. I have overheard many racist comments that the administration did nothing to stop. In my freshman year, some white boys built a wall around my Latina friend and chanted "build the wall!" The boys only had to say sorry and write an apology letter. I believe there should have been further repercussions. I think our administration needs to have more involvement and then we may have a better learning environment.
