Alum: Overall, I had a good experience at Waterloo High School. When I struggled with my mental health, my teachers helped instead of judged. There were tutor sessions and counselors at the ready for anything I needed. Bullying was quickly dealt with if it occurred, and for a small town, Waterloo had a lot of good options for classes (everything from construction to FACS).

Alum: My overall experience at Red Bud High School was mediocre. Some improvements definitely need to be made to the education provided. As a college student, I feel behind because my high school did not provide many college level courses. There are many students that I know at my college that have come to school with 30 plus credits while my high school did not even offer enough classes to obtain 30 college credits. There are many clubs and athletics to join. I personally was recognized many times in sports. Though this is true, I feel like Red Bud High School could have done more to promote sports and student involvement. Along with sports, drama should be given more focus. Though I was not in drama, I do know that they were put on the back burner lots of times. I think that Red Bud High School has improved in the past several years, but they still have a long way to go to make sure that their students are getting the educational experience they need.

Junior: My experience at Athens High School has been amazing. I am surrounded in a safe environment every day with teachers who are willing to help, peers who are willing to do anything for me , and other staff members that will do anything for me to further my education. I like how I feel comfortable with all of my teachers and they are always willing to fulfill my needs or any questions that I may have. I also like how not only have my peers turned into my friends, but my family. Growing up in this small school, I have learned to feel comfort within other people and not just my loved ones. The small school life has definitely positively impacted my education growing up because I know that if my teachers are unavailable I have my peers going through the same thing. Yes, every school needs their changes, but in my opinion, Athens is great just the way it is now. I am so thankful I had such a great support system growing up thanks to Athens High School.
