The school was great, academic wise. Living in a small town where rumors would fly, not so great. Honestly, I didn't love school. I appreciated the academic side, even though I took it for granted, but I was bullied so much, and teachers did nothing to stop it. They just sat by and watched. When I started high school, we had been having teachers quit because of unknown reasons. At the end of Sophomore year over six teachers had quit, some being my favorite. Honestly speaking, I can't say that this is the best school in Wisconsin, but I can say that I did love high school and I had great friends and teachers to make amazing memories with.
The programs set out for us at Potosi schools are phenomenal. Our staff provide a great atmosphere for us to thrive and express or ideas. With a little financial help, I believe our small school could provide more after school activities than schools double our size.
