My experience at Sweet Grass County High School was the average high school experience. I have enjoyed most of the students and staff. I would like to see more support for new sports such as soccer, wrestling, and softball/baseball. Our school lunches could also use improvement on the nutritional side and the portion size. Often we are still hungry do to the kitchen staffs inability to give the students more food.

Sweet Grass High is a small town high school. Because of that, class sizes are smaller making connections with peers, teachers, coaches stronger. There might not be as many academic or extracurricular opportunities offered, but I believe having closer relationships with the people around you matters more.
Sweet Grass High is small but the thing is, most people here truly care and it shows. The teachers do more than teach, they know you personally. The staff work tirelessly to make sure that we get opportunities most schools our size don't.
