our district built a new school about a year ago. Teachers and other staff are still trying to figure out how to best run the school. I will have to say they are doing a pretty good job at it.

Our town just built a new high school two years ago, so I was fortunate enough to experience the old high school. The new and old high schools had very different feels and that all depended on the atmosphere of the students that worked in the school. I liked the old high school, but was very happy that we were getting an upgraded high school. In high school I have been involved with varsity sports, orchestra, choir, musicals, and various clubs and all of those same activities transferred over to the new high school when we tore down the old one. We now have one of the best buildings in the state, but just like any new building and school we still need to work on the kinks. I would love to come back as an alum to see the people and progress that the school makes.

I did not have the greatest experience at this school. There was not much offered in the club aspect of the school. Especially in the arts and creativity. The advanced technology was very limited and sometimes I felt trapped in this world instead of the whole world.
