I love my High School! Most people although would think I would not, with my Dad being apart of the faculty. He’s a drivers education instructor and the basketball coach. I’ve lived in this town for all my life. My eight older siblings have as well graduated from Massac County Highschool and my younger brother and I are on our path to achieve the same honor. High School is what you make of it and I made it great by joining clubs and being active in our school’s “Spirit Week”. Another great honor was being nominated by my fellow classmates to be a queen candidate for our “Homecoming Week”. It was a privilege to be able to represent my school and show my appreciation for it.

I love the college preparation effort at Massac. Throughout the high school career, tests are given that are similar to ACT/SAT which help tremendously in developing test-taking skills. Every year many different colleges are invited to come recruit juniors and seniors during the day, and our guidance counselors always stress the importance of having plans after high school. The school spirit is also very high, and the student section at sports events is always very energetic. I am proud to be a Massac County Patriot!
The small community of Metropolis that supports us is what makes us great! Sporting games, food drives, trunk or treats, academic banquets, and so forth are always packed with a variety of all generations from the community. Going to a relatively small high school may not provide all the opportunities possible, but it makes up for it by the patriotism and close relationships we are allowed to share with our community and peers.
