    "I loved all the teachers in Spearfish High School they all liked me and really helped me succeed in my few years. But that is taken up by a bunch of things, the food was horrible at lunch, I would always either go out rarely or I would just not eat. The main thing though is the grading scale. We have a private school/college grading scale in a public high school in South Dakota it was so bad that I had like 3 or 4 grades that were B+ but would have been A's in a regular grading scale which ruined my GPA."

    "I am finishing up my career at Spearfish high school and was so fortunate I was able to attend this school! I got into an Ivy League school for college and it was because of Spearfish High School!"

    "Spearfish High School is a very good school where learning is the number one priority. Students are given equal opportunity throughout the school and many different options on what classes they would like to enroll in. Students are also given a laptop their freshman year which they utilize every day in class. Every teacher I've had while in high school is willing to stay after class or come in early to help students with work. The school has many different clubs and activities. For example we have Key Club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes(FCA). The athletics at Spearfish High are also very successful most years, just this year our boys soccer team won the state championship. Our facilities that we use are great, we have some of the best courts and fields in the state. We also have an amazing auditorium for all of our concerts and plays. I couldn't have asked for a better school to attend for my four years of High School."

    "My most favorite experiences at this high school included times spent in class with the teachers. I much enjoyed their ways of teaching the material put before us, and will never regret attending this high school."
