Although my high school journey was cut short, it was the best time of my life. I met so many new people and made a ton of new friends while still keeping in touch with some old ones I had known since kindergarten. That’s right kindergarten. I come from a small town where it mergers with four others in order to create a high school. This made the experience even better. It gave each student a chance to really get to know their teachers and bond with them. The teachers were always reaching out to kids and helping them in any way they could, it’s a sumner thing. Our staff in incredibly dedicated and hardworking to say the least. Go tigers!

Sumner has been quite an emotional ride. I've had some of my worse years, it's not because of sumner specifically. You know when you're in middle school and you were so excited to be going into high school. I felt like I was going to be so cool and I was very excited but when I walked into high school freshman year, I absolutely hated it. I'm going to be totally honest high school has been awful. On a positive note, I did learn a lot about myself throughout high school. I learned that I shouldn't care about what other people think, I learned who is my friend and who's not. I've learn a lot and I'm very proud of who I've become because of what I've learned.
The education is on an uphill climb, the new administration is working hard to make sure they are boosting everyone's over all grades while also getting to know each individual student. Sumner is also building a new building soon, it will be bigger to accommodate the large amount of students attending.
