We have several excellent teachers at our school, but some are just mediocre. Many of the teachers are friendly, but only a select few honestly care about the well being of the students and take that into consideration when giving assignments. Those are the best teachers, and they often have the best and most interesting lessons to teach. The teaching style varies a great deal from teacher to teacher. One might teach directly from the book, another might make notes from the book and teach us by having us read through and copy the notes, and others might know the course material so well that they can lecture about one subject for days and still be providing interesting information in a way that makes the students want to learn. The teachers are usually really good about answering emails and a lot of them take a good portion of their class periods to answer questions that students will have. The teachers are also pretty consistent about grading, and they are really fair and honest in the grades they give students so that the appropriate grade is awarded to every student.
Review Almont High School
While there are some teachers that are outstanding, there are also some that are teaching things they aren't passionate about which changes the way students learn, and effects the amount that the students care about that class. The teachers that are passionate and caring have engaging classes that students learn from, and enjoy going to, while others only provide irrelevant, stressful environments that don't teach students as much as they could. Many teachers try to incorporate new technology into a lesson, which never goes as planned.
There are several ways to get involved with extracurricular activities. There are a lot of activities, including a wide variety of sports, NHS, Student Council, robotics, and a few others. If a student is in a club, they're very likely to be dedicated to that club, but there are always some people who just don't care and want to be in a club to brag to their friends. The most popular sport for guys would be football, but the girls tend to like volleyball. The really fun club would be Student Council because we're really good at working together and having fun. The administration tends to just let the clubs do whatever, unless there's something behind the scenes that I'm missing. The after-school activities are mostly limited to sports practices or events.
