I was lucky to attend this high school during my "international exchange student" year. I came from another country and was chosen in this school as an exchange student. This is a very small school with the capacity of 400 student K12. Everyone s friendly to each other; since Sterling is a very small town in the rural area of Oklahoma so everyone happens to know each other by going to the same church, working at the same places or living in the common community or neighborhoods. One thing I was kind of disappointed about this school was the lunch meal given to students every day. Probably I came from a country from Asia so how I saw things here in Sterling were different from others. There are not so many races in school, the domain is the Native America and White. To be honest I was the only Asian in school at that time. In general, Sterling High School is where you can learn about the cultures of the Native American, meet nice people and become unique.

I think that Sterling is an excellent school if you're into sports. I was, so I was always happy but some of the kids who aren't might think different. Also, the administration forces no rules which leads to a lot of misunderstandings and problems.
I liked the small town atmosphere but don't like that teachers aren't held to a standard and many teachers don't prepare students for college.
