My experience growing up in a very small school district was fun and kept me active in group activity,clubs,and my education. Van Far high school is a small school, so all the teachers know your name and always check up on you to make sure you’re grades as well as your mentality was okay! Which I love the most.

It’s a school that has issues keeping faculty and our sports activity facilities need updated and expanded. However, they do pretty well with what they’re given.
I think the teachers do the best they can with what they have. They need to be putting more money into our education. We have trouble getting enough textbooks because they are "too expensive". The students are deprived of a proper education through the school district. I believe this school would be a lot better if we focused more on the education of the students.
