The school needs to be more open to new things and actually push for those things to happen, instead of giving up or having no faith in the kids. About half of the teachers don't want to be there, and therefore don't teach their students well. Some teachers, though, are fantastic. They want to raise the kids up to a new level and do everything they can for the kids, but the administration limits their involvement. Some of that has to do with American culture, but some of it is just plain cowardice.

For all I have known, more parents show up to basketball games then any other sport that this school has ever had or even meetings or open house. The school may be small, but we have gone to basketball championships and state in basketball many years in a row. Our school and community is known for basketball and more and more people each year attend these basketball games. Basketball is our schools sport, it is what we have always done better in.
FFA is one of the best orginizatins as well as the Nixon 4-H, Smiley 4-H, and Leesville 4-H. These clubs all compete in the same county Livestock Show. More people come here and raise money through these clubs then any other club in the community. I, myself, have participated in 4-H or FFa since i was in third grade and I have always loved it and being around animals.
