Republic High School Reviews

I liked that in my experience, very little bullying occurred. It still does occur, of course; this is southern Missouri. Most people are at least a little racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc. I also liked that some of the teachers are great. The building is pretty nice. The layout is easy to figure out; it's hard to get lost. We just got a new football stadium, so that's neat.

A complaint I have is that a good portion of the toilets nearest Mrs. Carter's room are always out of order. Seriously, what's up with that? Another is that the activities outside of sports do not get much recognition. For instance, I am in the band, and we are not recognized nearly as much as, say, the football team. The administrators and whatnot recognize us as much as they have to, but there's no passion in that recognition. Also, we have assemblies/meetings all the freaking time! Like, let me go to class and do my freaking homework! I don't want to be here!! Also, like all the kids are white.

The administration cares more about getting more funding from the State than the actual students. There are many attendance initiatives that I find unfair to many students. For example, students may be exempt from finals if you have a B or higher in the class, no serious disciplinary issues, and missed 2 days or less of the class. While I support schools trying to support going to school, this is unfair to students who simply can't go school, my freshman year I had to take finals because I was sick for 3 days, and I was punished for being sick. I find that unfair.
The experience I have had while in Republic High School has been interesting. The food is edible, the people are wildly obscure, and the classes are very educational. I am not a popular student at my school but it is easy to say I am not unpopular. There are good and bad things about my school. Our football team is terrible, the marching band is finaominal, the choir is great, the theater program is tremendous, the JROTC program is spectacular, the food (like I said before) is edible.
