I like the teacher to student ratio. There are some classes that I have taken with only one other student, so it is easy to get one on one help with teachers. My entire senior class only has like fifteen people, so all of our classes have a good student to teacher ratio. The teachers here want to help us succeed past high school. I only give my school three stars because we don't learn as much as I did at my old school. We aren't near prepared enough for the ACT as we should be as seniors. Also, the only elective options are agriculture and home ec related, which are not things I'm interested in. I like drama, art, and guitar, but we don't have any of those classes.

I've been very involved throughout my time in high school. I've played volleyball, basketball, track, and softball. I've participated in scholars bowl, forensics, and cheer. I have also been apart of FFA, FCCLA, FBLA, NHS, and Student Council. I've tried many different things and I feel like I have learned so much from all of them. My school has about 50 kids in the entire high school and because of that I feel like I have more opportunities than other kids at bigger school would have.
I have gone to school here since kindergarten. Our class has always been close we used to have more than 30, and now we have 12 students planning on graduating this spring. In most of my classes, we don't really do that much and the rest are online because there aren't that many classes available. The school needs some maintenance because it is a really old building. The administration has changed a couple times which causes some stress on students and teacher.
