At Rice Lake High School you feel welcome from the first day on campus. Going into senior year, I look back on my entire high school career and smile. Rice Lake High Staff members, approachable and positive, made it easy to feel included. My freshman year, I was nervous about being in a school with soon to be college students. The teachers recommended becoming a part of a club or sport to get to know the upperclassman outside of school; they were right. Participating in volleyball, softball, Future Business Leaders of America, and the National Honors Society made me recognize the older students as friends as oppose to classmates. As club teammates, we would work in small groups separated by specific goals. Coming together and overlooking our differences surpassed any other lesson I have learned in high school. Rice Lake High will always be home to me and I am proud to eventually become alumni.

The teachers are very helpful, caring, and truly committed to the success and learning of each student. I consistently experienced them going above and beyond, both personally and with other students, to ensure that a true mastery of the academic material is achieved.
There are a wide variety of classes, AP opportunities, and college placement programs available for students to take advantage of, though I will say that their options to partner with the local colleges are under-advertised. Nevertheless, there are great classes, skills, and opportunities to be had for any student and every type of learner.
My experience at Rice Lake High School was very good. All of the teachers want you to succeed. They always will help if you show willingness to learn. The school has great facilities and all around sports. The student life is very engaged in their amazing music department, outstanding athletics, and wide range of clubs. I have been involved in the music, athletic, and club departments and have had great experiences in each. I have held leadership positions in each that have taught me a lot. Besides extracurriculars, Rice Lake High School does a great job of giving their students opportunity to grow as young adults and give back to the community. I took a ten week leadership course my junior year which was open to any student athlete or manager. During these ten weeks, I learned many valuable life skills that I will take with me to college and my future. Rice Lake High School taught me to be a leader and gave me the education to pursue my dreams and goals.
