    "Keyser High School does very little to prepare you for life in general, although that is most of the education system. I know that many of my friends didn't know how to balance a checkbook or even write a check. We didn't learn how to apply for loans, buy a house/car, or basic fundamentals needed to move forward in life. Even the classes that were taught weren't necessarily done as well as they could have because I had a huge disadvantage in understanding terms, processes, and other valuable knowledge when navigating through my college classes."

    "I do not feel very happy at this school because the staff is almost completely uncaring. I do not feel optimistic about my education."

    "I would defiantly return to Keyser High School because of a couple key reasons. First, even though our school has some ridiculous rules, the amount of extra curricular activities and the unconditional support for the students to participate in these activities are absolutely amazing for a school in such a small town. Another essential reason for my choice of staying at Keyser High is the outstanding career classes that are provided to all high school students in Mineral County. Our county has an exceptional technical center that provides the students with a extraordinary programs. These programs have helped many former pupils in their future careers. These two reason's are why I would choose to attend Keyser High School if I had the chance to do it all over."

    "There is a very low level intelligence in the school. The student body is mostly made up of Caucasians. Students belonging to a minority are ostracized and bullied for their skin color and how they act; mostly by the more rural of the population. Students with different sexual orientation are the most bullied. There is an extremely high pregnancy and dropout rate at the school. Drugs and alcohol being consumed during school is an everyday occurrence, but most teachers turn a blind eye because they really don't care. Students brand involvement in school activities as "uncool" for the most part."

    "I have had many teachers throughout my 4 years at Keyser High School that are excellent. These teachers truly love teaching and care about their students. They are knowledgable in their subjects, and always do their best to make sure that each student understands the course before the end of the semester. However, while I have had the pleasure of working with roughly 6 or 7 teachers who are passionate about teaching, I have also had some teachers who show an utter disregard for their students. I'm not sure if my schedule has just been bad, but I have had over 10 classes in which my teacher does not teach the course that I signed up for. They bully students, have poor attitudes, and teach irrelevant subject matter(if they decide to teach at all) without any repercussions. I believe that the education system has failed me because I have not had classes available to me that prepare me for college."
