I went to this school and felt the education I received was excellent. Your experience is what you make. They offer a wide array to allow you to grow in many areas.... take initiative.
I feel that I must reiterate what the fellows below me have sated. I am a senior at the high school and my family has been going there for three generations. It is a great place where the students first goal is their education there second their activity and their third making sure everyone is involved that wants to be. This school is perhaps one of the cleanest facilities in the North Country. I find it interesting that a parent would say such a thing about the environment they themselves send their student to. To that particular parent I have this to say If you don't like my school That s fine but give reasoning and logic instead of just 'This school is awful it needs to be cleaned up...' that is not what a review is meant to do a review is meant to show problems but also strong points.
I agree I don't think that the school is all that sports-oriented. Yes most everyone likes sports. But there is a large percentage of people who also are involved in music and other programs like Model UN or speech and debate. There is also a school newspaper completely written and run by students. In fact most kids in my grade are trying to be as well-rounded as possible. Kids are VERY involved. Also I don't know why you'd think the school is dirty. The custodians do a fantastic job and the main hallway has just been revamped. The kids at school are also some of the nicest people I've ever met. We're not a horrible school. I love it and I really can't fathom why you'd call it awful.
FYI to the person above me. They are doing a massive project on the school now. The fields behind the school are being redone and the hallways in the school are much nicer now. I don't know why you think it needs to be cleaned up. The janitorial staff do a great job keeping it clean. As for sports yes we do like sports but we are involved in other programs such as drama music community service and many academic ones. If fact we have an amazing speech and debate team and our music department has great funding. The students are very involved in everything. We are not just sports obsessed like you seem to think we are.
This school is awful it needs to be cleaned up way too involved with sports.
