Addison Trail High School was a school where something new happened each day. Some days it was very quiet with no students roaming the halls while on other days there were many fights. The staff was friendly, but in four years a lot of my teachers never had the same lunch break as me causing me to have a difficult time getting help. When they did have a break, there would me a lot of other students getting help as well. Although, I am proud to be called a Blazer!

As a graduating senior, I have experienced much- if not all, of what my high school, Addison Trail has to offer. The students make the place a wonderful facility- we are all part of a community- we help and support each other so that we can all prosper. Yet, I believe most of the faculty is appalling. From a students point of view, a plethora of teachers are condescending toward the student body- truth be told, some of these people have no business teaching, and are hiding behind the safety wall of what we call a "tenure". I wish the district employed less tenured teachers. Most high school teachers don't become better after 10 years- they just grow accustomed to their routine and can anticipate students' questions and are genuinely confounded when approached with new questions.
All in all, Addison Trail gave me "The High School Experience" and that is all any senior graduating a public school can ask for.
The teachers at Addison Trail are the reason high school was so much fun for me. I never had a bad teacher, I developed some type of relationship with each one. They were always there if I needed help and took the time to make sure I was where I needed to be. They always put their students first and make sure we're on top of things. Throughout the years I've had exceptional teachers who I owe most of my success to. They stood out from everyone else and made class so enjoyable and clearly love what they do. I've become so close to some of my teachers that I was able to go to them with my problems and they would help me and even give me advice. Another thing that I really love about my school is the school spirit. Spirit weeks are always my favorite and it brings people together, especially at school events. Football games are the highlight of some of my best memories at AT. Going with my friends to support my friends on the team was something I always looked forward to.
