My experience started freshman year. Everybody, even the seniors were accepting of all classes. There were plenty of activities, events, and clubs to join, almost too many. I played football all four years, lettering in three of them. With being a football player it made you the example of the school, we were considered as one of the smartest teams GPA wise, exemplary volunteer service, and conncections that go beyond the classroom. Like wise I could say the same for my other club that I joined, Talawanda High school's NHS chapter. Overall my classmates, and myself, were cared about, and accepted at Talawanda High School

I've so far had a great experience going to this school. Whenever help was needed the teachers are always there to get you through things you don't understand as well as giving resources you may need and not know it. They are always giving opportunities to get you ahead such as FCCLA doing projects and going out of state for conventions and community service. English teachers make us prepared for real life things as writing recommendation letters, many of essays for ransom to get us ahead, and preparing resumes for colleges and works to look at. I feel this school offers so much academically and through sports for all students. The diversity in the students is also a plus because many students are exposed to different things.
I have been to many other schools and this one is by far the best! They have great teachers, sports and clubs. They also have a great opportunity working with Miami University , letting high school students take classes at Miami. The students can start working towards their college credit for free. The school pays for it. You could have your whole freshman year done before you even graduate high school, without breaking a penny. Now that is something to take advantage of! They also work very well with students who have distillates and help make accommodations. This is a great school and I highly recommend it.
