Over all Polson High School is a great school. All the teachers are involved with student activities, student success in their classrooms as well as others and care about all the students in general. The whole staff will do everything they can to make sure a student is passing all their classes as well as coaches. Athletics in Polson High School are outstanding. Everyone goes to the games or meets to cheer everyone on. Everyone has amazing school spirit. One thing I would change would be the bell schedule. Most schools have block periods witch A days and B days, whereas we have a seven period schedule. I think it would be nice to only have around four classes a day and each day they alternate. But overall I absolutely love this school.

The staff and students create strong relationships with each other. The teachers and other staff truly care about the students well being and education. They understand what the students' needs are and how to support them with those needs. Staff also discuses each individual's goals and how to achieve them. I would like to see more school spirit from all the students, as it brings people together and creates bonds between students. There is a homecoming week celebration, which is the most spirited and amped up week of the whole year and creates a great atmosphere in the school. I think that this needs to be replicated every day of the year so that each student can enjoy their high school experience.
I have attended five public schools in my lifetime. My parents have worked at nearly twice that amount. I have been connected with huge schools in California, schools with only 50 students k-12, alternative education facilities, homeschools, and just about everything inbetween. Polson offers a beautifully unique welcoming environment. I have never felt more at home at school than I have at Polson High School. I am eternally grateful for the amazing staff who taught me how to learn and enjoy it, as well as my peers who make every day exciting and full of laughter. Polson High School has prepared me for life and made me excited for it.
