    "The teachers at Kiona-Benton City High School are for the most part involved in their lessons. Since most of the curriculum is controlled by the state (Common Core), there isn't a lot that teachers can do to apply these topics to the outside world. Most likely less than 10% of people will use these actual teachings in their day to day lives no matter where they go. I believe in schools we should be using curriculum that will expand the minds of young students and help them become better people and harder workers in life. What is the point of teaching something if it is never going to be applied to a real life scenario? Most high school kids these days don't know basic things that you're going to have to know how to do once you graduate high school such as, writing checks, paying taxes, the fundamentals of cooking, how to sew, how to balance a check book, and various other skills that are needed in our fast pace world today.Most of the teachers at our high school are pretty good at communicating what our grade is to us, since our school is so small. They just received a new grading system this year that is much easier to use than last years and you can check your grade from almost anywhere and the gradebooks are updated more frequently."

    "Going to Kiona-Benton City High School is pretty much the same as every high school except you know everyone since we're only a 1A school. I love that we know each other by name, whether they're a Freshman or a Senior. Most of these kids I've known since 3rd grade so they're kinda like family. Sometimes I wish our school was a little bit bigger that way we had a larger student section and we'd be able to have more diverse classes. Our school is unique because every morning as you walk through the doors either our Vice Principle or our Principle greets you and says, "good morning!" If i had the chance to go to a different school I don't think I would want to, even though sometimes I complain about how small it is. It's nice having a tight knit group for both as a graduating class and as a whole school."

    "Most of the curriculum is Common Core so nothing really branches out from your typical state mandated lessons. It only talks about evolution not creation because apparently it offends people to talk about being conservative but not liberal. I think we should teach students about both so that they can choose one or the other so it's not a biased lesson plan. giving both sides gives them the opportunity to choose which one they believe. We don't have a super heavy workload, but then again it differs from year to year and from which teacher you have. The most popular classes are probably woodshop and drafting since they're taught by the same teacher and he's an awesome teacher. He treats you more as an adult than a kid, as it should be."

    "Most kids at our school are very intelligent and they are involved in sports, they keep their grades high while practicing almost everyday or having a game. There isn't a whole bunch of stereotypical "minorities" because most of the minorities are actually the majority of the school. Our school isn't big on race, we've all known each other for so long we're just friends because that's who we hangout with and we get along. Our school isn't big on the whole "clique" and drama thing."

    "The parents at Ki-Be were supportive for all students, as long as it helped their own child succeed. When it was for sports, there was a decent amount of attendance and support, when it came to arts, the crowds were practically empty."
