Student, Colfax High School, Class of 2017,
I have had the opportunity to attend two different high schools in my career. I began at Foothill High School in Redding, CA with a student body of 1,400 students. At Colfax, there are only about 700 students. Foothill was a preppy school with some rich kids while Colfax has more middle-class rednecks in attendance. I love Colfax High School but I would recommend attending a different high school. Because of the small size, there are fewer AP and Honors classes that other schools would have more of. I feel like there would be more opportunities for aspiring students at a larger high school than at Colfax.
