Neligh-Oakdale Junior/Senior High School Reviews
Neligh may just be an average Nebraska school, but I believe it excels above similar sized schools. When there is a need, it is almost always addressed. They look at results and make plans for next year based on student feedback. Our school is quite dynamic, introducing new programs often with each year. The resources are fairly good for a small school; we have modest yet accommodating sports facilities, laptops that aren't too old, and more. The only thing I would say could be improved is the attitude in school, concerning both students and teachers. Some students have a negative attitude towards education which can ruin the experience for others. Also, some teachers are a little too laid back which can lead to a high amount of cheating, late assignments, and messing around with the students. However, there are also some teachers who are almost like family to me. Overall, if small schools are your thing, Neligh would be a pretty good choice.
Neligh-Oakdale is a school where the teachers are great, but the community makes it hard for the whole school to be great, if they would not have scared away a great superintendent that was doing amazing things for our school, Neligh-Oakdale could be a really great school. Unfortunately, some people were so used to not having to do their jobs, that they felt threatened by her. She tried to introduce change, but the community was against that too, even if it would have made our school a better, safer place. The experience of the school was good, I just wish it could have been great.
My overall experience is great in some areas and mediocre in others. My son Bryce has had great support in going to Nationals in FBLA 3 years in a row! The parents at our school are very supporting to all athletes. Our school really isn't unique in any way. It's your typical small town school in rural Nebraska. If I had a choice, my kids would go to a school that has more high end classes offered to the kids who are excelling. Our school is lacking tremendously in that area, so mu kids will have to take these classes in college because there aren't hardly any offered in our school. The one thing I am happy about is the kids all know each other and everyone is very respectful and treat others with respect which is not always the case.
