The timing of our lunch period is ideal, but the length of it (only twenty five minutes before the first bell) is too short and we are asked to leave our tables to make room for the kindergarteners. Every once in a while I will eat a lunch at the school, but most days I bring my own because the options are not very healthy. Everything, even the seemingly fresh muffins, are processed and come out of plastic packaging. I do appreciate the bowl of fruit, though that runs out fast, and options like cheese sticks or milk. There also aren't any true vegetarian options, as even the salads come with "meat". I suppose they could eat things like cheese pizza or Bosco Sticks, but again, those lack any healthy qualities as they drip grease.

Our football team just went to the state quarter final game, so I can't really complain. A large majority of our ski team goes to state every year, too. The boy's basketball, softball, and baseball teams are state hopefuls this year, too, so our sports are not bad. Unfortunately, the ones that I didn't mention tend to be pretty average or below that. Overall we have a pretty good variety of sports teams at the school. As for our town spirit, it is crazy intense. We had hundreds of fans drive down to the cities for that football game this past fall.
This school might not have all the opportunities that some larger schools have, but that lack has taught me to work for success on my own. I have a sense of self reliance that will carry me through college because of this school. I have also had some of the greatest friends in this school, which is the main reason I wouldn't give it up for a different high school experience. The small scale of it has allowed me to have personal relationships with teachers, general faculty, and all students in both my grade and the ones surrounding it. I also adore the town that the school lies in and I have grown up in, so I wouldn't want to give that up, either.
