    "The teachers at my school are generally really great teachers. They do their best to involve all the students in the class, and are available before and after school for extra help and guidance. They have fair grading systems, and help students understand where and why they lost points on exams, projects, and classwork. The school provides the students with laptops, so the teachers find ways to use these technologies in the classroom to provide the students with more learning opportunities and engage the students in the lessons. They listen to everyone's ideas and include them in class discussions. The teachers are easy to talk to, about schoolwork or any other problem's one might have."

    "The academics offered at this school are okay. The classes provided are excellent classes, and the teachers are all knowledgeable of what they are teaching. The only issue with classes offered at school is that due to it being such a small school, there are only so many classes a student can pick from. We have a limited number of electives to choose from, and it can get harder to decide on a class you would like and enjoy the further you go in your high school career, because then you already take all the classes you would enjoy. The curriculum for classes is easy to follow, and almost all core classes offer the option to take the general version of a class or an honors/AP version of the class, based on your academic ability and plans for after high school. The workload is manageable, the teachers try not to assign too much homework and overload the students, especially because they know the students participate in after school activities or have jobs. Sometimes, students are able to take independent studies, if there are no classes they would enjoy or relate to what they would like to study in college. In/After school tutoring is available to the students from NHS students who volunteer their time, or by teachers who are willing to stay after class/ come early to help."

    "I really enjoy my experience at this school so far. I have been going to this school my entire high school career. The students and staff are very involved with the school, with everything from success of the students, to sports, to other extracurriculars. The school does its best to provide activities and sports to suit most everyone in the school. The teachers are amazing with the students and do their best to help the students succeed. Sporting events have high attendance and support from the parents, staff, and students. There is always a student section for sporting events, where students can get together to support their team. We are unique because we are a fairly small school, so it's hard not to know one another. This sounds like a typical small town high school, but we are unique in that we typically all get along and do our best to support one another to help each other succeed. We have pep rallies for football games, dances, our annual mud-volleyball tournaments, as well as other special events throughout the year. If I could redo high school, I would most definitely choose this school again."
