Hesston High School

- Hesston Unified School District, KS
Junior: The teachers are lovely and most try their best to make sure the content is understood. It’s a smaller school (about 260 students as of 2017), so most everybody knows everybody. I myself have never witnessed excessive bullying, but there will always be a few bad eggs. Bullies are taken care of by the staff once the problem is brought to their attention. The curriculum is easier than most schools; about 25 to 33 percent of students have a 4.0 GPA. Lots of effort is given to help student prepare for their next step in life with frequent visits from representatives of several colleges in the area.

Senior: At Goessel High School, I had a very enriching time in the extracurricular activities. The coaches have always encouraged me to work hard, overcome difficulties, and form a strong bond with my team. I know that this is going to benefit me in the future. The academics, however, are not very challenging. In fact, there are only two teachers who have really challenged me in the whole school. There are teachers who will let the students converse for half the class without intervening. By talking with students from other schools, I have come to realize that I am extremely deficient in some academic areas, not because I have a learning disability, but because I've never been taught some things or have been taught them in an efficient way. I must brag on the music department, however. Goessel's music program is extraordinary. The teachers are passionate and really get the students to put their hearts into their music.
