Newcastle High School
- Weston County School District No. 1, WY
Sophomore: Newcastle Highschool has been a great experience for me thus far. There are many different classes that one can receive and the teachers make sure to help their students whenever needed. There are many classes offered here in Newcastle Highschool that can't be found in many places. These classes include culinary arts, early childhood, textiles, ceramics, glass, woodworking, metal fab, and many more! There is a student diversity (along with class diversity) and the school offers many sports. However, the school food is poor quality and I often find myself jealous of the meals that other school systems have.

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.

Upton High School
- Weston County School District No. 7, WY
High School Sophomore: Overall, I have enjoyed my experience at Upton High School. The reason why I am not sure if I would go to this same school again if I could do it all over is that there are many things that other schools have more established and more success with than UHS. One being high level classes and organizations such as AP, IB, and Honor Society. We do have AP classes and Honor Society, but we do not have much for an established AP program and our Honor Society is not very active.
