Preston High so far has been a really good experience overall. I have always had teachers that encourage me, and tell me that I can accomplish whatever I want to. However, one thing I would like to see change is that the counselors need to help high school seniors with their college transcripts. Various people, not just myself, have had to go into the counselors at least three times in order for them to send their transcripts in. Even though they said that they have already sent them in! However, overall Preston High has been an awesome experience and I will definitely miss all of the memories and friends that I have made there.

I like the social part of Preston High School. There are quite a few activities that everyone can participate in. I also like that there are many electives and clubs, especially for such a small school. Personally, I wish that there was a little more value placed on college readiness. I also wish that there was more support for the school's music programs and not just the sports. Also, all of the sports need to be included, not just football and basketball. Overall, more inclusion of the diversity of interests is what I think would be a good thing.
It was so great! The teachers are so down to earth and are very involved and supportive of the students. They strive for improvement and the success of the students. The kids were excepting and it had a lot of fun classes to offer.
