Senior: Pagosa Springs High School offers you the chance to succeed. Not only does it offer good teachers, safe environments, activities, but also a good education. They take the time to teach you the subject and if you fail once they offer you the chance to try again. They do not want to see you fail and many other schools do not offer this opportunity. This opportunity is overseen by many but they truly offer a true chance to try again. If you fail that as well, there is Saturday school. Teachers take their own time out of their schedule to come to school on Saturday’s and reteach the subject to students who are still struggling. There are many teachers who are willing to help and make you feel comfortable no matter the situation. Having a trusted adult to talk to during highschool is one of the most important factors in my opinion. In these youthful years, it is quite difficult for students to reach out to talk to someone.

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.
