Overall, I am enjoying my years at Pequot Lakes High School tremendously. I have lived in the area my whole life and found that the school is very close to the community. I have always felt comfortable in school. Everyone; students, teachers, and other staff members make Pequot High a friendly environment. I have been given various opportunities. Programs that aren’t offered in all schools. I am on the Varsity dance team, Varsity speech, Student Council, NHS, and Spanish Club. Pequot High offers activities for everyone. Just a few examples are football, cross country, tennis, trap shooting, art club, hockey, wrestling, track and field, golf, and something recently added, robotics. As you can see, we have many clubs and teams that bring our school together. Within the Student Council, we try our best to find ways to bring together everyone. At PLHS it is important to be accepting. Pequot is not very diverse, but we make sure that everyone feels welcome, regardless of who they are.

Pequot Lakes High School is filled with kind people ready to help you. The athletic facilities are great and include a three-court gym, a high quality weight room, and an extra auxiliary gym that were all recently added on. All high school students are given a chrome book that they can use for the remainder of their high school career, which provides a wide range of opportunities.
Overall, my experience at this school has been great! What makes this school amazing is that it is led by a principal and school board that truly care about the student's, their success, and their wellbeing. Sometimes, I wonder about maybe what life would be like if I went to a bigger school with more diversity and options, but I think Pequot Lakes High School has the perfect balance of not being too big where student's don't get enough one on one attention and not being too small where there isn't enough educational and extracurricular options.
