Senior: Webb City High School has outstanding standards in secondary education. While the academics are far above the average, I would say that the priorities among the extracurricular activities are very skewed. Sports, especially football, are idolized among our district due to the reputation of their performance. As a result, the fine arts departments are heavily underfunded and disrespected. The administration and faculty attempt to make it seem as though the district is generous towards these departments when in reality there is an obvious bias at play. Along with these problems, the student body is also narrow-minded and discriminatory toward certain students. Bullying isn't necessarily a problem, but there is a lack of inclusion and respect towards students who are different or against their personal values. If you want a conservative, Christian school that isn't open-minded toward other people, then this is the school for you.

Junior: When I moved to Joplin back in December of 2019, I didn't know what to expect when I was going to start the second half of my junior year at Joplin High School. The one word that I can describe what I felt on my first day that I started at this school is "wow". I had never seen a more diverse school with so much acceptance in my entire life. There were so many welcoming and outgoing people that instantly made me feel at home with my new environment. I majorly improved with my academics and felt more "myself" at this school. I have told all of my friends back at my old school that Joplin is the place to be where they can be themselves and not be judged whatsoever. I am so glad that my mom moved us to Joplin because if I never would started at this school, my mental health would still be bad and I would not be that happy. I love the environment that this school has to offer!
