This is a great school if you like personalized teaching. Class sizes are generally 20 students or less in a classroom. I graduated in 2013 with 92 other students to put the school size into perspective. This did make some of our athletics challenging, with such a small talent pool to pick from. The classes offered were fairly diverse, although I would like to see classes like personal finance and personal fitness be requirements instead of electives.

There are great teachers and there is a great community. You can trust your teacher and they will assist you academically so you won't fall behind. There any many clubs and after school activities you can get involved in. There are many courses that you take to get ready for college. But there are also many course that you can take to show your imagination and creativity. We have a great engineering program that can get you ready for any college engineering program. The engineering courses has better equipment than some colleges. We also have some great art programs and a strong performing arts program. There is many great musical groups as well at this school.
Hale-Ray High School has given me the tools to succeed beyond high school. They have the best staff and the best academics. Their sports programs has taught me discipline and gave me lots of acquaintances. Their privately funded Agricultural and Tech Ed programs allowed me to explore cool things such as CNC routers, maple syrup production, agricultural mechanics, and a boat load of other programs. Overall, I am thankful that I got my high school education at Hale-Ray.
