Adm. W.F. Halsey Leadership Academy has helped me learn about several life situations and how to handle them in rough times. The school has been a multicultural atmosphere that has helped me shape myself into who I am today.
However, what I would like to change would be the motivation of many of the students, make them want to come to the school and have a peaceful and educational school system.
Review Adm. W.F. Halsey Leadership Academy
At Halsey, I learned to become a better person, and that not everything needs a reaction to it. My favorite experience at this school is that whenever I was going through something I could always go talk to Mr. V and Mr. M. They always things in a perspective where you could understand both sides, and they'll always keep it real with. They tell you the truth because they know no one else will. The unique thing about the school is the teachers, because when you go to Halsey people always think were a bad school but in reality were not, we just be going through somethings that we can fix by just talking to someone, like your favorite teacher. This is the reason I'll go back to Halsey if i could, I just wish i had these teachers earlier.
I mean it's okay but could be better, the nurse don't take care of you all they do is give you ice for something. And the security guards does there job. They always checking your bag, and make sure your in uniform. Also make sure no one from different schools come in. The health programs comes to my class every Thursday to talk about our health and have events for us and bring in health smoothies. The school is safe but sometimes I feel unsafe when someone makes a bomb threat or something, but other than that I feel safe.
