Ponca High School is a wonderful school with many opportunities that prepare students for their futures. Some of those opportunities would be the Junior Interview Unit, the Sophomore Career Unit, and the Senior Scholarship Unit. In the Junior Interview Unit, students are taught how to fill out a resume and a cover letter for a job application. After those forms are completed, five local professionals come to the school to interview the students. This unit is great because it prepares the students for their future job or scholarship interviews and applications. The Sophomore Career Unit is awesome because it allows the students to research different careers to see what they are interested in. It helps the students find their path for their futures. The Senior Scholarship Unit is another great unit because it truly helps the seniors prepare their scholarship answers. These units are just a few of the many great educational units that Ponca High School has to offer!

Over all my experience at Ponca Public School was good, but administration showed favoritism to students who's parents were on the school board or community leaders. If I could change anything it would be to even the playing field so that all students were offered the same opportunities.
For a little school, the students at my school get so many opportunities. In the surrounding areas, our school definitely has the most opportunities. All the staff members are extremely supportive of all of the activities too.
