I feel some of the teachers employed by the district aren't there for the right reasons. They are just getting through each year not invested in whether or not their students do well or learn.
I was able to be involved in many activities and extracurricular activities. This, I feel, was due to the fact that our district was smaller and we were able to participate in multiple activities and groups and not focus on one particular thing.
Also, because we were a smaller district, I knew everybody in the high school. I developed relationships and friendships with many different people.

I really enjoyed the experiences and memories I made in High School. They lead me to who I am today. Not only did I receive an amazing education, but I also bonded with many of other students and teachers. I learned many valuable and important lessons in education. I learned to work harder to further my education, and to also work harder for my future. I had one teacher who was really hard on the edges. He would push us further and further to our limits each day, but I have learned a great deal because of him. I also learned that in order to be a better you, and to learn more, you must work together with others. He also taught us that you must work hard to achieve your goals in high school. High school is the main stop where you are molded and shaped in before you enter the reality of the real world. He will always be my role model. Overall, I had a miraculous life at South Central Calhoun. I believe I have been shaped into a new and better version of myself.
South Central Calhoun has provided me with an excellent high school education. It is just the right size and everyone supports one another. I have been involved in sports, student government and FFA. The coaches, teachers and leaders instill us with confidence and teach us how to work hard. The parents are very involved in all aspects of the school. All in all, I feel I have gotten a good education and have had at the opportunity to take several college classes early. I am excited to move on to college, but will definitely miss it here.
