I had a lot of great experiences in high school. I think my favorite experiences were being on the running and soccer team. I made several great friends. And I had really great coaches who would always encourage me. What really makes this school unique are the teachers. How they're always so positive. If I had to choose to go to this school again. I would definitely say yes. Because it has a great staff. And great students who always try so hard.

I love Opelika. The teachers and administrators want to see students achieve. There is a place for everyone at Opelika because it offers so many options for students to participate in advanced academics, extracurricular activities, or athletics. I have wonderful counselors and teachers who make sure that I am putting in my full potential for school. Teachers make sure that I am taking the AP classes that I should and that I am ready for college. As long as I show that I care, the teachers are great and will almost always help me. Staying involved in sports and clubs has made my experience even better because I made friends through those activities. The AP teachers I had taught me valuable lessons that I will take with me to college and apply them to the rest of my life.
