My experience was fantastic at Rock Valley community school. I started in TK and worked my way up to senior year! When I entered middle school I thought it was pretty easy. High school came and I think the hardest year was my junior year with a lot of speeches and homework but I got through it. I enjoyed the school in many ways. The teachers would always help you out through every problem you had. Yes there was some rules and I really wished it would be different on the dress code but other than that, I enjoyed every bit of it.

I love several things about my High School. First of all, I love all of the teachers. I haven't met a single one who isn't willing to go out of their way to help you. They all work so hard and take the time to make you the best student you can possibly be. I also love all of the many activities you can be involved in. One thing I would like to see change is for students to be able to have open campus over their lunch hour. It would give students the opportunity to be refreshed before the rest of the day. I also wish students would be able to participate in show choir without actually being in choir class. The reason for this is because some students would love to be involved, but sometimes students don’t have room for the class in their schedules. Besides the point, I have loved my experience at my High School and I hope my own children will attend it someday!
We have a few different extracurricular activities. We have TSA,FCA,FFA, Sports-Football, Basketball, Golf, Wrestling, & Volleyball, Cheerleading, Music- Choir, Jazz Choir, Show Choir, Instrumental Music, Jazz Band, Spanish, Art, Yearbook, Publications, FCS- Foods, Marriage & Family, Child Development, Sewing, Interior Design, Accounting, Construction and Metals, Student Government, Speech, Play, Musical, Technology Class, Teach Team. The list goes on and on. There are so many things to be in. Most kids are in a ton of things and figuring out when to have what is hard to do for the directors of each thing.
