No matter what I will always like Maxwell High School. I have been there for its highs and its lows. My freshman and sophomore years were great and after that it slowly went downhill. It's not the school the makes the experience what is is (injoyable/uninjoyable) it's the people you share it with. This is a VERY small school and it does its best that I can given its size. I have had so many opportunities at this small school that I know I wouldn't have had at a bigger school and for that I am grateful. I wish more people would realize this and appreciate the fact that even the most I athletic people get a chance to play on a sports team (with tryouts at bigger schools this would not be possible). It's also extremely special that students at Maxwell High School know everyone's name. So what I'm trying to say is that at this time Maxwell High School is nowhere near the greatness that it has been, but I was there when it was great and it has been great in the past as well. This is my last year there, but hopefully for the classes below me, the greatness will one day return!

Maxwell High School offers the following sports: volleyball, cheerleading, football, girls and boys basketball, baseball, and softball. It's very easy to get involved in sports. Most of the time there are no tryouts and you are guaranteed a spot on the team. The clubs offered at our school are: Future Farmers of America (FFA), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Associated Student Body (ASB), book club, and boys and girls circle. A lot of students are involved in sports and most students are in FFA (only because if you take an Ag class you are automatically in FFA. Again it's pretty easy to join a club and there aren't a whole lot of restrictions. For ASB you do have to be elected, though.
Being at very small school with 100 students we don't have the funds for a teacher for every class.Most teachers here teach 6 periods with one prep period. Each period they teach different subjects, so they seem to always be stressed in the period they are teaching. We as students don't get the proper teaching we should get.
