High School Sophomore

On Extracurriculars: We have a mixture of different clubs but they are mostly meant for future farmers. Other clubs tend to take the back seat and do not receive much if any funding.

High School Sophomore

On Administration & Policies: The staff plays favorites with certain students. Many students are not treated as equally as other students. This includes males being treated better than females, athletes being given special treatment by some staff, female students constantly being bothered by staff over dress code, and students with medical problems are treated poorly by the attendance and guidance offices as far as attendance goes.

High School Sophomore

On Health & Safety: The campus is very unsafe. Students often bring knifes to school, not to mention most students use some for of drugs or tobacco products.

High School Sophomore

On Sports & Fitness: There is a large number of teams at our school but I feel that students only show support for the teams at pep rallies.
