On Sports & Fitness: Like any rural community, the sports at this school are important to many students

On Food: There are very few choices for a healthy meal at lunch.

On Extracurriculars: Sports is a large focus at this school, with just a handful of academic clubs. I wish there had been more academic clubs to participate in.

On Educational Outcomes: I felt for the most part prepared, but because the area is so rural, many students do not want to leave the area. Many of the people in the community are somewhat closed-minded about many issues as well.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: Very active club life. Unfortunately, since a lot of active club students take rigorous courses and play sports, the clubs dont get as much done as they could.
