The teachers here are so friendly, and the school is such an encouraging environment. Even though the school is grades 6-12, it still has a very small enrollment with only 250 kids. All of the staff members are there for you no matter what, and people are always willing to help. The performing arts department at Stearns is like no other! There are plenty of clubs and resources available for students to take advantage of as well. The only downside to Stearns is the fact that there are not many accommodations to advanced students. There are no AP courses available, and the only honors courses are for English. Only a few number of courses actually prepare students for college.

As a student at Stearns High School I had an excellent high school experience. At Stearns High School the activities and extra curricular activities are very important to many students. Being involved is important to many students, and helps everyone come close together in such a small town. If I was to change anything at Stearns High School I would try to combine schools with Schenck High School. Many of the students get along and are even friends! This has been brought to discussion before but the history of rivals will not be dropped. I believe combining could give all of the student more activities, greater experiences, and new opportunities!
What I loved about Stearns High School is that all of our teachers were always willing to help us when we needed it. I also loved all of the after school activities that the school offered. They offered fall musical, show chior, one act, peer council, student council, field hockey, football, basketball, softball, baseball, and pep band. In high school there was always a place for everyone to grow. If I could change something about the school. I would try to get teacher that had more experiance because a lot of the teachers at Stearns was there first year of teaching witch can be ruff on everyone. I would love to have the lunch room serve better for for the students and have more lunch staff down there to control the bullying that goes on in the lunch room. Over all though I have loved my time at Stearns High School and would not trade it for anything.
