Reese High is just like your average farm community high school. We pride our athletics just as much as we pride our academics. We are normally ranked top three schools in our county. I personally did not enjoy Reese High. It is based on politics, what your last name was., but I guess this happens at every school. It was just very noticeable within the school. This is definitely something that needs to change; however, it was impossible. I did the best I could and enjoyed the time spent with real friends who accepted me for who I am.
I have attended raise high school for the past two years. There are things I have enjoyed, and there were things I also do not enjoy. I came from a big school District where sports were really big. Reese high school does not offer a variety of sports which was hard for me. I went from doing cheer for many years to having to do pom-pon because they did not offer a cheer team. I also have played softball for 12 years and had to give it up after my recent experience at Reese High school. This school is also kind of unfair because there is such a high academic standard that if you are not in the top 10 of your class then you are not cared about. This school is very hard to fit in and feel yourself because there are so many different cliques and there is always drama because it is such a small school.
I like how the teachers are so involved. There’s such a close feeling between the students & staff, which makes it such a comfortable place to learn.
Great school, teachers cared about kids learning and overall it prepared me for college classes through the use of Dual Enrollment opportunities as well as a progressive trend towards more college level classes as well as class style in my junior and senior years.
Most teachers in person are very helpful and will answer any questions you have. Online classes could be better connected but only a few are truly too difficult due to the teachers themselves.
I wouldn't have picked any other high school. My dad is an educator at Reese, so all of the teachers were like family to me.
they generally help those who desire to learn and do a great job
There is only a focus of bringing the kids with learning disabilities to the middle and anyone who is advanced in their learning get left behind and have no additional resources to push them further.
College prep, guidance counselor, tutoring, non-existent. The building and facilities are old. The bathrooms need to be updated and have toilet paper replenished on a regular basis.
This school is more interested in the trophies in the case than the students education.
I do not think the administration has any idea of what actually goes on. There is one guidance counselors one day a week for a whole school.
There are a few teachers who put a huge effort while there are others who "have the right" to be there and really want the students to understand how difficult their job is and how they should just accept what they are saying. There is one teacher who feels the need to bring her views as the only views that count into the class.
I would not recommend any child to attend this school if they were looking to further their education past a community college. There are no advanced courses for students who excel. The administration want to bring the academically challenged kids to the middle and that is where all the resources are spent. IF you are an athlete, your grades always seem to be higher than the non-athletes.
I do not think they have any health programs in the school. As far as safety, I only see the locked doors you have to be buzzed into the building with. There is no other control and once you get in the building you can go anywhere before anyone asks.
The teachers here are the best. They are friendly and helpful. They will go out of their way to help you if your falling behind.
The bus driver I had to Tech Center. Was amazingly nice as long as you didn't anger her. She was a cautious and a really good driver. She did her best to keep the bus a friendly environment. She would give us assigned seats if we acted out. No one in high school wanted that.
We had no school nurse. But the security measures are reasonable for a small town that the worse thing that happened was someone forgot to take his hunting gun or bullets out of his truck.
