Here's the thing about Snowflake; it's a great small, close-nit town. Parents volunteer, lots of students are involved in sports and other extra curricular activities. There's really a lot of good things about Snowflake High School. But here's the other thing about Snowflake; it's very white and very Mormon. I am neither of those things. I'm half Navajo, nowhere near religious and don't belong in this bubble. They're not just a religion, they're a community within a community. The parents are all friends and the students all know each other outside of school from the day they're born. Even living in this community my whole life, I'm still a bit of an outsider. I've gotten a good education and I've made a few good friends. But in Snowflake High, it's more about who you know than what you know. I'm ready to spread my wings and be among some people more like me. Snowflake is a good place to get a foundation, it's time to build upon that in the real world.

This is a great school if you want to know everyone and you want everyone to know you! There is something great about knowing the people you are being educated by and the peers around you. However, the education may at times seem restricting which makes it hard to be college ready.
The community is small, so you get teachers who might also be your neighbors. Academic and athletic competition are limited, but then so are the opportunities. You might get to join a sports team, but the relevance of that experience is limited if you want to play beyond high school. Academics are also weak, with course offerings limited. No AP, but seniors can get college credit through the local community college.
