    "There are some teachers that are extremely passionate about what they do - they strive to not only teach the students the subjects, but to also teach them about life."

    "Salmon high school is by far the best school I've been to. It's small the people are great. It's an awesome learning environment. Teachers are amazing with helping you pass their class."

    "The small community both provides a support and a suppression for most of the students. Because community resides in a very isolated area, most students do not see people of a different color, culture, or religious background beyond LDS, Catholic, or Baptist. The community is predominately far right Republican. Past students of a different sexual orientation (bisexual, asexual, or gay) have received huge amounts of ridicule and bullying without a whole lot of help from administration. Private support from the teachers was provided however. There is also a lot of peer pressure to drink. Many kids divide themselves into those who do and those who dont. Friendships overlap on these boundaries, obviously, but it is very hard to avoid being pressured into it."

    "There are a handful of teachers who obviously get their jobs through nepotism in the church. But these teachers are generally so terrible they last only a year and they are pretty far and few between. The rest of the teachers are spectacular. My community is a tough place to be, especially for a teacher and they not only do the required aspects of their job. They go far above and beyond. Most of the science staff will write grants for the department so they can have enough money for fun and extremely educational labs. As well as field trips that last four to five days. The teachers have put together a Travel Club for students who may not get another opportunity to leave the country. Teachers are all passionate and knowledgable about what they teach and how they tend to their students. Grading consistency could be better because some teachers tend to be harder on some students than others, but it's only because they want their students to rise to the occasion. Not because they're bullying them or trying to tear them down in any way."

    "I think a high school experience is what you make of it. I was lucky in that two out of my four years there, the administration was decent, the teachers were motivated and had written grants to provide themselves with funding the state could not provide, and my graduating class was the most academic and athletic class to pass through the high school in 15 years. I think the unique thing about my high school is the location. I live in a very small community that has nothing for about 3 hours around. My graduating class was 64 and because of that, students became very close and encouraging to each other (in my case. There are classes that were more malicious to each other and the smaller classes provided an opportunity for large scale bullying). There was also a very unique ability to be involved in everything. Since the school was so small, to make things function the captain of the volleyball team also had to be in charge of the class float for a homecoming parade. Or the student body president was also helping out in leadership classes on their free period. The individual ends up making the difference in this particular high school. If they're willing to do the time- it's fantastic. If they don't want to participate...nobody makes them."
