The school may be small, but the school has so much more to offer than many larger schools. It's teachers are more than just teachers; they're hands on, and they get to know their students on a personal level and become more than just teachers, and more like personal mentor, someone you look up to. There are tons of clubs, such as Key Club, T.S.A (proived by the amazing Corki Matilla, and Jay Bernhart), B.P.A., Spanish Club, and more. Wallace offers many different types of sports, like volleyball, basketball, baseball (seasonal and legion, track, Pagel's weights program, etc. Not only that but the coaches are just as good as the teachers. Great school, outstanding hands-on teachers, many options for sports, and ridiculus amounts of scholarship opportunities. This school is definitely one I would recommend.
