My experience at adrian as a student has been okay. The only complaint I have is for funding, sports get the most money in this school and Many of the teachers have just lost interest in teaching. Everything that is taught just seems to be how to get through highschool the easiest way possible so you can leave and that's it. Its unfortunate I feel some teachers just need motivation or atleast need to be teaching a subject they are interested in because teachers are just thrown around to any subject and it makes in not enjoyable for the student and teacher resulting in poor performance.

I like the diversity. The sports are very competetive. Most teachers are excellent. It is a very big school for our community and the surrounding schools are a fraction of the size with smaller cohorts. If this size is troublesome we have school of choice in the county. Most sports and acedemic recruiters focus on this school because of the size and diversity. The cons of this school are the size. You can get lost in a crowd, meaning if your grades slip it is hard to keep track of. Cuts in sports are a reality. If your not excellent you will warm the bench from middle school on up.
I was very involved in the clubs and other student ran organizations at my high school and felt that those helped make my high school experience. The faculty seemed to have a general concern for my school work and there were a few teachers would check on me personally to see how I was doing. The common core curriculum bothered me at times because it felt boring and impersonal. The teachers that I did have that didn't follow it exactly but instead focused on my learning experience and the quality of that content made me feel like I was reaching my greatest potential in public schools. It was classes like that that felt more individualized were the classes that prepared me for college classes where I dual enrolled. It also made me realize the gap between some of my glasses and how lenient they were compared to the real world of college. It made me think about some of my peers would college would come as a shock to them and how they would struggle and fail.
