Starting out small and ending big! West Hardin is a very small school in Saratoga, Texas. I have always gone to school here and plan to graduate in the same place. It’s been one great experience starting from kindergarten all the way up to the tenth grade. I’ve had lots of opportunities opened up to me by the West Hardin FFA and the West Hardin High School Golden Pride Marching Band. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for this amazing school. We may not be the best at what we do but we’re getting it done and getting better in the process. This school is growing and has great things coming for it. I have big plans for after I graduate and I know I can get them done even in this small school. Being in a tiny school is like being in a BIG family. We have our ups and downs and not everyone likes each other but there’s never a dull moment at West Hardin. Can’t wait for the upcoming opportunities and exciting events we have coming our way!

West Hardin is very organized and professional school. They work really hard to get you prepared to go off to college and care greatly about your education. They will always find time to help you when you have questions, and is always willing to do their best ability to help you understand. I have always felt comfortable asking for help because I knew I could always count on someone being there to help. West Hardin is a very independent school and is always making sure things are working properly and running smoothly, they always put out their absolute best effort at everything.
My experience at West Hardin was not great. I was very involved in all clubs and activities and that was pretty much the only good thing. Our school is behind academically and its a shame. We are offered college courses only to find that we are not truly ready for them. Our safety is very poor and there is almost no diversity being that its a small isolated community that not very excepting at all. The community is all related and the parents are crazy which becomes our safety issue frankly. Our school needs to be redone ever since the hurricane. Our locker room showers spit out actual rust. The track is almost complete concrete because the school wont hire the right company to resurface it and we have no budget to do so. I would love to see everything change. Lets not forget that raccoons and cats live the ceilings. Although one positive, we did have the asbestos tiles recently taken out of one part of the hall we only breathed in a little of it.
