Saluda High School is a pretty small school. This allows for close relationships between students and administrators, which I like. However, Saluda High School does not have many career-specific classes or extra curricular activities. Most classes are generalized and I wish there was more specialization. This has been improving, though, and I hope it continues to improve.

My school is very unique. It is made up of diverse students from various family backgrounds. Most importantly, regardless of who you are or what background you come from, Saluda High makes you feel welcome with a warm smile and encouragement to be involved. We have various clubs to participate in, in which I have participated and have been a part of most of them. Each club or organization has a passion for what they are doing and want to make it better/more inviting. We always have morning pep rallies on game days and on specific game days, we have pep rallies in the afternoon. They are really fun and invite students to go to the game that night to support their school. Our student section invites all and always have fun themes like Hawaiian night or Camo night. We always have various functions and opportunities for our diverse students and that is what makes Saluda High so great!
Teachers at my school genuniely care for their students. They always go above and beyond to help students that are in need and they make sure that the students comprehend the lessons before they move on. If however, a student is still struggling, the teachers always encourage their students to come back and ask questions and recieve help. Some even allow study groups to occur within their classrooms after school hours for studious students who like or want to get extra help. Teachers overall are pretty great at Saluda High!
