Senior: At Rice Lake High School you feel welcome from the first day on campus. Going into senior year, I look back on my entire high school career and smile. Rice Lake High Staff members, approachable and positive, made it easy to feel included. My freshman year, I was nervous about being in a school with soon to be college students. The teachers recommended becoming a part of a club or sport to get to know the upperclassman outside of school; they were right. Participating in volleyball, softball, Future Business Leaders of America, and the National Honors Society made me recognize the older students as friends as oppose to classmates. As club teammates, we would work in small groups separated by specific goals. Coming together and overlooking our differences surpassed any other lesson I have learned in high school. Rice Lake High will always be home to me and I am proud to eventually become alumni.

Alum: I liked Barron High School for the most part. It had skilled teachers who knew what they were talking about and were able to make their subject matter engaging to students. The school also had plenty of clubs and extra curricular activities to enrich your experience. For example, if you enjoy music I would recommend the high school band. One thing that I do think needs improvement is that in some areas, the school is understaffed. If you have disabilities, there are people to help you, but you have to be patient with them because the case managers are overworked. There are too many disabled people and not enough people to help them succeed to the best of their abilities. The staff they do have for helping disabled people are helpful, the school just needs more money to hire more people.
