Anoka High School has been an amazing experience! Last week I was at EMASC, Eastern Minnesota Associations of Student Council, and I had the chance to connect with other students and their high school experiences. A lot of the school had never had the chance to really experience diversity within their schools and said that they had never had to think about the differences that we experience at our school. It was amazing to have the chance to explain some of the culture and diversity of our school and see how it affects everyone from students to staff.

I loved the school for the people and the activities. I spent a lot of time getting to know students and teachers. I have fantastic relationships with some teachers, and barely a relationship with others. I have found a lot of friends and people who think like me. I also found security in activities like choir and speech, which were the highlights of my high school career.
However, I think the school's administration is a little horrific to say the least. Some of the counselor's have no place being counselors and the way the administration handles situations regarding students of color is horrendous. Someone almost got kicked out of a show of culture all because a white girl made false claims about feeling threatened by this girl. This seems to be the biggest flaw and one of the few flaws of the school, along with having hired teachers who treat students disrespectfully and leaves the students they are teaching to be confused and upset about their experience in that class.
At Anoka I wasn't very involved at first but there was always teachers and counselors who encouraged us to get involved. I loved how they encouraged us to step out of comfort zone and try new things. I ended up joining cheer and theatre because of this (I know weird combo). It was one of the best decisions I made. I made a lot friends in those programs and stepped out of my box. This helped my coping with high school a lot. For the future I hope to see more diversity and seeing them get out of their comfort zone and their comfort groups. It would be great to see everyone involved in one way or another. I think there should be more college ready classes and more classes about dealing with things in the future, like balancing a checkbook or how to run a household or something. I just know that the futures in great hands either way.
