So far my experience at Niwot High School has been very impactful. I am very grateful that my parents decided to enroll me into Niwot High School. From my freshmen year up until now, my last semester, I have enjoyed every single one of my classes and teachers. The teachers at Niwot High School really care about how there students are doing education wise and mentally. They are very understanding of everyone’s specific situations and they accommodate for them. They understand that some students need different teaching styles and methods to help them learn and they provide additional help to those that ask. What makes Niwot High School so impactful and meaningful is my teachers and I would recommend this high school to anyone.

My experience at Niwot High School mostly had to do with self-growth and discovering more about who I was in a larger, more varied setting than what I was used to in middle school. Niwot was a large enough size that I was able to learn more about myself as a person, but not so large that I lost myself in the crowd, which was definitely beneficial. The academics at Niwot are top notch, although there does seem to be a perpetuated idea that IB students are inherently smarter or more hardworking than AP or traditional kids. Niwot athletes are also great examples of student athletes, excelling both on the field/court/track and in academics. I myself was an IB student athlete, and I feel that the faculty and staff were all really understanding of us. Overall, I feel that Niwot's IB program really prepared me for college!
The atmosphere at Niwot High School is one of encouragement and motivation. I am surrounded by fellow students who are dedicated to, not only success, but also to learning and understanding. Furthermore, the teachers from whom I have had the privilege of learning have inspired me and motivated me to never give up on the success I desire, but to also leave room for failure and the opportunity to learn from it. I have accomplished so much during my experience at Niwot High School. I have been given countless opportunities to explore, create, try new things, and get involved. I am confident the academics and the extracurricular activities to which I have been exposed at Niwot High School have made me a more rounded individual and prepared me for my college and career experiences.
