My expierience at Potosi High School has been very unique. I am a honor roll student, but I feel the teachers for a very poor Jones at teaching. I am an all sectional and districts champion athlete buti feel the coaching ispoor as well. My expierience has been ok as far as high school goes. Burn on the other hand I cannot wait to go to college.
This school has gave me the best experiences and has gave us students a great education. One of my favorite experiences was going to San Antonio, Texas with the marching band. It was my fist big trip ive ever taken that I can remember. I have made lots of friends while at this school and I have never had any bad experiences. What makes this school unique is the amount of school spirit. Durring our homecoming, everyone participates and it is a really fun time.
