NKHS is a school in a small community, so it helped me have a very social high school experience. The staff is undoubtedly one of the best schooling staffs in Minnesota. They helped make my high school experience an easy and transitionable one. Because it is a small school, there is not a lot of opportunities for extracurricular activities and clubs. I think with student feedback, that problem could be fixed. Clubs are an important part of a student's schooling experience because it creates friendships and establishes personalities. The academic integrity could be improved, but the school offers a limited amount of college level classes. I believe that NKHS did the most for my education that they could with the resources available.

Most of the support goes towards athletics at this school. As for true "after school" extra curricular activities, there really aren't any. Things such as band, choir, drama, and student council take place during the school day. In the case of band, choir, and drama, those are classes taught by the same teacher because the school isn't able to fund them as after school activities. However, students are expected to spend time outside of class working on those classes, such as practicing music at home or memorizing lines/lyrics for drama productions or choir concerts. Overall, the school could use more options for clubs, but because of the lack of funding, it isn't currently feasible.
One thing that I was very grateful for at this school was the availability of extra-curricular activities. Because the student body wasn't very large, it was possible for most students to be involved in a sport or extra-curricular group if they really wanted to be. This gave me opportunities that I may not have had if I attended a larger high school. However, because it was such a small school, there was not much funding, which made the education standards lower than larger, more affluent schools. If I had to attend high school again, I would say this school was nice for it's location and potential for athletics/extra-curricular involvement, but attending a school with more up-to-date class curricula would have been more beneficial in the long term.
