Very small town school, I graduated with 10. It was fun and very involving, but not much to do. Teachers were nice but they retired and the teachers are new and not great. Administration is even worse but looking to get better.

Sterling Public Schools is an all around great school. The staff really gets to know the students here and want to watch them grow and succeed. They will always work with the students to help them in any way possible. The students here are also extremely friendly.
For a small school we have a good size of different classes that students can take, but our staff does make us take the core classes that we need most before we can do any different classes which works out well for us. The scheduling process is smooth for us and easy for us to understand what classes we need to take. Yes we think the workload is a lot but we just really don't want the homework, I can say that the student body almost always have homework done.
