There's quite a lot that I like about my high school. We're in a very rural community, so even the high school is filled with the bliss of a small town. The teachers are invested in the well-being of the students, as well as their education.

There's also a great number of clubs, sports, and other activities to keep you involved. I have had an amazing time for the past four years.
