Moffat County Highschool has been a good school for me. It’s a very small school so it’s easier to make connections with classmates and teachers. Being a senior I feel like this school has prepared me for my next chapter in life. Everything the school offers is great; however, the school isn’t very big so I feel like I have less opportunities than kids who go to school in bigger cities.

This school is.. Alright. I'll have to say I've had my share of ups and downs.. But who hasn't? I especially enjoyed Yearbook class, Drama, and DECA/FBLA club. What makes this school unique is our ability to shine and work hard despite being in a small town. The people of Moffat County are especially involved in sporting events, such as football and basketball. However, reasons I would not attend again would be because of the lack of budget our school has. Some of my classes barely have 5 textbooks to share with the class, others won't have enough to give to all of the students, meaning they couldn't be checked out all year/semester.
The teaches at MCHS are engaging, and promote student ideas and pre-known knowledge into their lesson plans. Communication skills are satisfactory, though could be a bit better with helping students who are struggling over particular lessons and in certain classes. Grading is usually consistent and fair, and overall the teachers are kind to students and engage well with them. Its a pretty good school, but it would definitely be improved if we had more of a budget to work with, maybe to buy new textbooks amongst other things.
