    High School Senior: I believe that River Falls High School is one of the best high schools in Wisconsin. It is a beautiful school with new upgrades. Most students are friendly, and the teachers are wonderful. When I am in school, I feel safe and welcome. I feel like I am receiving a wonderful education because teachers care and put effort into their teaching. It is a challenging school due to the higher grading scale, but it motivates me to try my hardest and receive A's. The 2015-16 school year, the school has provided each student with their own Chromebook because the high school wants to implement more technology into the classrooms. It makes it easier to do research in the classrooms instead of having to go to the computer lab. The school has many wonderful groups and clubs that students can join. There is at least one club that students might be interested in joining. The school also has a variety of sports for athletes to participate in, and I do believe that the programs are good. One of the best experiences that has ever happened to me was being nominated Prom Queen my junior year. The class votes for five girls and boys, then chooses one girl and boy. I was very surprised, but I felt like it was an honor to represent my class. I believe that the River Falls High School is an incredible school to attend. It is a good school district to raise children in.
