My high school experience has been wonderful. At SHS, we have amazing staff who care about each and every student. We are a very small school, so everyone knows each other’s names, and almost everyone is related! I have never had problems with bullying at this school, and I have always had so much support from all of my teachers. Upon entering High School, I had no clue what to expect. However, my expectations have been exceeded and I am well pleased with my school.

Your reputation at the school is not based on how respectful you are, how good your grades are, or any of that. It is solely based on your health, social status, athleticism, and wealth. As someone who suffers from different medical conditions, I feel as if I do not get the assistance I need here. The "no excuses" policy is ridiculous. Then to add on to that, diversity is horrendous. If you want to make a name for yourself here, you have to be straight, white and conservative. I cannot believe how disrespectful some of the students and faculty are. Yes, there are some good hearted people here, but they are very few and in between. The good things are that they do offer a select few college classes (College Algebra and College Literature are the two I can name off memory.) Sports are excellent here, if you can get into them. The people here that enjoy this school take great pride in the fact, which I can respect.
As a student at Steelville High School, I am often stressing about my chances of getting into a good university due to the lack of college prep resources. This school does not offer the AP or IB program classes that many colleges look for. However, the majority of teachers I have had truly care about giving their students the best education that they are able to provide given the circumstances. Our lack of diversity within the school is concerning, and one will often be faced with harsh criticism if you identify with the LGBTQ+ community and if you differ from the popular political stances.
