    "I loved the teachers they were always so helpful and would always put the students first when we needed help. They especially helped a lot with working around sports schedules. I'd like to see the curriculum become more challenging to help better prepare the students for success in their future careers."

    "I enjoyed my time at Yerington High school because it was a diverse, well organized, very successful school. The sports programs through the school do very well in their divisions and are very strict in respect to the NIAA's drug and alcohol policies, and are very well supported throughout the community. They have wonderful teachers that take their job seriously, administration as well, everyone at Y.H.S tries to make sure every student is reaching their full potential and I respect that about the school. One thing I would like to see chamge, and I believe it is a nation wide policy, is the bully policy. The bully policy is, in my opinion, very vacuous because it takes all the emotions experienced in high school and tells students not to show them because if someone were to take it the wrong way it would be considered bullying. I'm sorry to say, the real world doesn't care about your feelings like school does."

    "If you're an average parent you don't put much attention into the after school activities at the school unless your child or a relative is apart of some form of athletic program. There are the parents who go and do everything they can do to support their child but these are usually the parents with money so they have a lot of free time. most parents are working all the time and usually do not want to go somewhere if they really don't have to. My parents for example are this type of parents. I was one of the most involved students in this school and my father never attended one of my events. My mother on the other hand did attend events but only when i was going to participate in something. other than tat my parents didn't really care for the high school events."

    "My freshmen year of high school was probably one of the best years when i was attending the high school. This year was better than most because the teachers actually enjoyed teaching and the staff there was the best. It was shortly after our principle passed away that the school started to fall apart. the greatly affected the school because it was a small school and everyone knew everyone. After this tragic event many teachers left the school or simply just did not care as much any more. A new principle was put into place and it just got worse. More teachers left after the passing years and by my senior year more than 6 teachers left the school. However, there are still teachers who care and go above and beyond to help keep the school morale up. They stay after school to offer help with work and they are usually the teachers who are uncharge of school clubs such as student senate and honor society etc. The teachers that use in class hands on learning are the best and where they can give you an actual real world example. These teachers are the nicest people ever and they love to get to know the students and they grade everyone fairly because they want everyone to get better and not just pass them and not care about the class."
