I attended the Reeths-Puffer school district from kindergarten all the way until graduation. I found the school to have a very pleasant atmosphere and I always had a great time while I was there. They have taken extreme measures to ensure safety for their students, which some might seem to be over the top. But I believe they are doing the right thing in order to promote safety in their school. They care deeply about the success of their students and I loved being a part of a district like that. I greatly enjoyed being a Reeths-Puffer student.

I transferred to the Reeths-Puffer School District in third grade and continued to attend until I graduated in 2017. Previously I attended an arts academy which instilled a strong love for visual and performing arts in me. Reeths-Puffer was a great school to transition to because of their equal love for the arts. The theatre, choir, and band programs are all absolutely incredible. The directors are attentive, passionate and very educated in what they do. Many of the teachers I had were personable and very helpful. I received help applying to colleges and for scholarships from multiple faculty members. There is a lack of mental health related help but it is being worked on. The sports programs are put together but receive special treatment from faculty occasionally.
Reeths-Puffer is a very standard high school. Like all schools, it has its highs and lows- the good and bad teachers (and everything else). I would like to see the education reformed (and not teach directly out of a workbook), and I would like to have the teachers teach for the sake of learning, not just memorize facts for some test.
