It's a small town school with not a lot of funding to work with. It's very nice for being in a small community, but it has areas for improvement.
We have very basic required classes, with the acceptance of some (very few) college classes. Our workload isn't anything we can't handle. unless you are in the college classes; usually provided by North Country Community College.
As far as the school nursing goes, our nurse is hardly ever in her office. We do have security cameras around the school and outside. From being such a small town our school is pretty safe. The doors are locked during school hours and require a buzz in from the guidance office. Visitors must sign in.
I loved playing soccer for my high school. All or most of the athlete's parents would attend to cheer us on. Friday night football games not only consisted of the athlete's parents, but former athlete's parents, and sometimes teachers. I also loved art classes at my school. Our art teacher was very big on being independent and starting projects that you actually wanted to do for yourself and didn't necessarily have to do the project she insisted on. Everyone had their own unique twist on these projects and we all shared a passion to share our finish works. These are some of my favorite memories from my high school that I will always remember with a smile on my face.
The staff takes security and health very seriously. There are security cameras in every hall and the doors lock after school begins. There is also a police officer who will patrol the halls until school starts and the doors lock.
This school is really great. However, there tends to be few clubs and the ones that do exist tend to have little funding. With that said, the teachers who run these clubs make sure that the students can have the best experience possible with the little funding they have. The school also tends to be cold. Administration is incredibly helpful and very friendly, though.
The teachers are incredibly dedicated to their students. They are always available outside of class via email or stopping by their room after school. Every teacher goes out of there way to help their students throughout the year and love to learn and grow with you.
It's not horrible but it is certainly not the best.
If there was an award for serving chicken every day they would certainly win it.
Not really much, but what they have is certainly decent.
They try the best with what they have which provides a great environment for students.
The teacher's truly try their best to make the best of what little money they can get, but the money is so scare there is few clubs that are offered.
The academics allowed for students to become extremely well rounded. We had opportunities to excel in college courses in eleventh and twelfth grade as well as a New Vision program which I participated in. This allowed me to have multiple experiences in the hospital and gage my interest in the medical field with which I ended up pursuing a degree in nursing. I now have one year left of nursing school, and I absolutely believe I wouldn't be here without my concrete high school education.
