What a really enjoyed at Poland is the close, tight knit family we had even with our school being a small rural school. Whether it was in the classroom, playing sports, engaging in the fine arts or enjoying activities in clubs and organizations. When going to Poland you could always count on someone which could be fellow student, teachers or higher faculty. As students at Poland we always knew there was someone that would always having our back. Parents were also a big component of Poland by participating in many activities. Our community was known for hanging balls on the light poles in the village to show our pride for the sports teams. Parents were proud and the players were excited to see their names mentioned.
One thing I would like to see is more higher level courses. If you were someone that was an honor student by the time you reached your junior and senior years your options were small for those individuals. Overall my experience was one to remember.

There are many different sports and other activities. There is an after school study hall and a tutoring program. There are many different clubs, like drama, foreign language, student council, ski, skate, music, honor society, students against destructive decisions, peer leadership, mock trial, science, envirthon and like a million others. They are usually pretty low pressure and welcoming to anyone. We have blood drives, spaghetti dinners, family fun nights, 4,000 different sports, all kinds of community involvement and fundraisers. Lots of things to do and a place for everyone.
In one aspect, I am very thankful to have gone to a small, safe school.

Classes were small, allowing one for one with teachers. Also, it allowed everyone the opportunity to participate in sports and clubs easily. I enjoyed playing sports for PCS greatly and I will miss it when I graduate. On the other hand, going to a small town school has it's flaws. Life is pretty simple and often boring. You are with the same 20 students everyday for so many years that it feels like nothing has ever changed. Such a large majority for the students behave, dress, act, and talk the same, that if you do not fit in that category, making friends can be difficult.
