I have loved my overall experience at Slaton High School, we have some the best teachers, and the very best superintendent, Mrs. Becker. I also enjoy our ECHS program, and our superintendent always makes sure that the small funds we do get, get dispersed as evenly as possibly throughout our different extracurricular activities. (sports, band, and the arts) The only thing I wish was different was the participation of students in really any school spirit activities.

Slaton high school is a good school to go to. Most people say that Slaton is a bad town and has poor schooling, but we don't we are very smart. Our teacher will stay late or even go to the school earlier then they are suppose to. Our teacher and principal will go out of our ways to help solve a problem. I have had a lot of help from my principal and teachers in the past two years. They are there to listen to what I have to say and try to help me get through the tough times. They give good advice and know who each and every person in Slaton high school
There are many options for after school activities at Slaton High School. The different clubs and organizations vary enough to interest several different students. A Chop Shop is currently building two motor bikes to raffle off at the end of the school year, and there is an art club that is dedicated to enhancing the aesthetics of the school building in an effort to make it feel less "hospitalized". Although I only participate in National Honor Society and Yearbook, I am often able to marvel at the different accomplishments of our school while recording the events for the the yearbook.
