Throughout my four years attending Coon Rapids High School, I had a great experience. I had the opportunity to experience different classes focused on a specific major/field outside of Coon Rapids High School. Which allowed me to get a better feel about what field I want to major in, and I also had the opportunity to meet new people from different schools. The staff was great, they provided strong commitment to helping students succeed and they would talk with students not only about academics but personal life. The school emphasized about how important people's culture is, they gave students opportunities to share their culture and way of life. Despise the differences and the diversity of the school, the staff emphasized how important the unity of the school should and needs to be. Coon Rapids provides free college visits to students which is crucial to the college readiness and planning.

There is an abundant amount of clubs for students to choose from. They range from musical and artistic clubs to student council, Yearbook, Medical Clubs, Theater, Teaching, guitar club and so many others. In most clubs the commitment is very high, the students love the clubs and want to stay in them. HOSA is very popular at out school and it is great for students interested in the medical field or just want to have fun and be around great people. Student council has a lot of administration support. DECA is also very popular at our school for students interested in Business.

I have spent all four of my high school years at Coon Rapids High school. I have absolutely loved my time there. I feel that I have been very involved in my high school by being apart of the Cross Country team as well as Basketball and Lacrosse team. I also am in clubs such as HOSA and I am the senior editor on the yearbook at my school. I love my school because of the students. There is a quote that we have at our school that has been around since my freshman year and that is "when you are a cardinal you never stand alone" and that is very true we show up and stay late and cheer on our sports teams as one team. The teachers really care for our education. Every teacher that I have had loves to challenge us and never gives up on us. We are a big school and we have lots of diversity which is a great thing and it really shows throughout our building.
