The learning environment is outstanding due to the great staff. If you’re having an issue whether it’s school related or not, the staff cares enough to listen and gives great advice on how to handle the situations as I know from experience. Stilwell is like one big family that’s bonded together through the arts. The fine arts teachers for each major are outstanding at what they do and presents great showcases throughout the school year. Overall, Stilwell is a great school, and I am proud to say that I’ve attended all four years here and will be graduating with the Class of 2019. Thank you Stilwell!

As I reflect over the past four years of high school, I am grateful for the experience. I’ve accomplished many milestones from handling difficult situations to pushing myself beyond my comfort zone. Throughout my high school tenure I participated in many organizations that would give me different exposures. The organizations include, Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D.), Student Government Association (S.G.A.), Young Historians, International Club, and the News Cast Team, just to name a few. However, the organization I adore the most is I Demonstrate Educated Beauty (I.D.E.B.), a club working to educate and empower young women.
I've attended Stilwell for a full three years and I'm currently preparing to finish my last year. As I've progressed through this school I've been met with unique individuals, professional teachers, and caring administration. You can tell the adults at this school genuinely care about their students and their readiness for the outside world. Not only do they offer academic excellent but an outlet for creativity no matter what art you major in. This is an amazing school and id recommend anyone to go to this school.
