I am attending Pelican Rapids High School this year as a junior. I love the diversity and the friendly personalities throughout the school. However the students are great, I do not like the teachers very much. They are not very friendly and tend to favor students, especially athletes. Some teachers give special treatment and tend to make students feel left out.

PRHS is a fantastic school! Teachers and staff truly care about all students. There are many opportunities for students to participate in many different activities. In addition to sports they have excellent knowledge bowl, math team, music, drama, robotics, speech, PaY, FFA, and more. There is a climate of high respect among students and staff.
I have had a good experience at my school. I have been given the opportunity to be involved in many activities. My school has prepared me for college.
