Personally, I love Staley High School. I believe that the teachers, custodians, and administration do a great job involving every student. Whether this be in a school play, debate, or a sport, the majority of students at Staley participate in an after school activity. This not only shows how amazing the staff is, it also shows how passionate people are about Staley High School. If people were not passionate, they would not participate due to the fact that they wouldn't like Staley. Overall, Staley does an amazing job at including everyone which causes everyone to get involved.

Staley is a school that holds its students up to high expectations. The staff encourage mindsets that are goal-oriented and constantly remind students to have "grit". The word grit tells students to be determined, focused, and persistent in all that they do; students should focus on advancing towards a future where they can find all the success they could want. The students feel invigorated by how much so many of the staff members care about them and their futures. Staley students have much pride for their school and the atmosphere is welcoming and enthusiastic.
Staley high school is overall a wonderful school. The teachers and counselors are willing to help push you to finding college opportunities and to help with your current struggles as a high school student. There are many ways to get involved at Staley high school, including a variety of sports, clubs, organizations, and many fun activities located in the library. The staff and administration are always on watch to make sure us students are safe, that’s one of the most important things. Other than that they focus on making us successful and achieving our goals. Grit is what they say. They encourage us to have grit so our futures can be bright. The one thing I would change at Staley is how we spend our budget, there are multiple televisions in he cafeteria that we don’t use, we should find a better more efficient way to spend those funds. But besides that Staley is a great school. Even the students are supportive of one another, we are one Staley nation who stick together.
