At Fairchild Wheeler I was given the opportunity to not only grow as a student but a person, the school itself is extremely clean and the teachers are reasonable with due dates and understanding of students struggles as well as they strive to build deeper relationships with students it truly makes for a great learning atmosphere. While the school is very good there and I have no major complaints after going there for a few years the few things that can be fixed are the long lines and the lack of opportunity for physical exercise, there are no sports teams and physical education is only offered in Junior year. Overall I would rate Fairchild Wheeler a very good experience.

My school is so unique in so many ways like the fact that it is a bran new school that opened when I entered the 9th grade, but the one thing that stands out the most is probably the technology we are using. Students in all grade levels can use equipment such as 3D printers, air tunnels, electron microscopes, 3D holographic technology, green screens, and even robots. Also, the fact that the school has early college experience provides students with classes that are offered normally at universities like the University of Connecticut, Sacred Heart University, Universitiy of Bridgeport, and much more. These classes allow students to get college credit before they even go to a college. With that said my school is just about education in fact my favorite moment at school was when we have sport tournament when students get to mop the floor with the teachers. With that all said I wouldn't want to choose any other school besides this one even if I had a chance to do it all over again.
There are a couple teachers I can think of who do a great job and continue to do a great job. They're knowledgeable and care about the students they're teaching, inside and outside is school. However, since I started attending this school I've noticed they have a problem with hiring adequate people to teach students. These people are hard to work with as students and, particularly the ones who are older, have trouble understanding students and their behaviors. Also, many of them clearly struggle with the technology-based environment the school is supposed to be, and that makes it hard for them to give us work and for us students to be able to hand in work. This has been a problem since my freshman year and it still continues to be a problem. The school isn't hiring well-qualified people and it affects our grades, which makes school life harder for us to deal with on a daily basis.
