For a small town, Poynettet has a great education system. It's very obvious that everyone in the school cares about the students and is committed to their success. I value education greatly, and this is a school I would be proud to bring my kids back to. Sports are important but don't overshadow what's important. There is a variety of clubs to join and it's surrounded by a great community.

Poynette High School is a very diverse school shown by all the activities and classes that are given to us students. Each year every student sits down with our school counselors and talk about which classes and activities best suit not only each student, but what will be useful for each students future as well. As a senior this year Poynette High School has made me the person I am today and has prepared me for my future. The only thing I would change about Poynette High School is adding finals to every class each student takes. Adding finals would benefit every student because it not only teaches students to study, but it also helps with time management and preparing students for college, or even just skills you need after school. Overall, Poynette High School is a great school, but students lose the experience of finals when attending Poynette.
I enjoyed my time at Poynette High School immensely. As a small town, I liked the small school energy Poynette High had to offer. We took pride in our sports and clubs, as did our close knit community. I believe that while the school pride for existing clubs thrived, the diversity and amount of clubs could be improved.
