Over all my years at Archer High school, I love the school spirt my classmates show at sporting events. Every football game is crowded with students from all grade levels decked out in school spirt. Every basketball game I feel united with all the students packed into our main gym as we cheer on our peers. Every baseball season the hallways are lined with posters encouraging Archer Tigers to come out and support our team. Even the lacrosse games had student sections! Archer High Athletics is something all students are proud of.
One thing at Archer that unsettles me is the way faculty treats students when it comes to dress code. Female students are called out almost immediately upon entering the building. However, when it comes to male students wearing things that are not permitted I cannot recall one time a male friend of mine was called into an office.
Regardless, my high school years were memerable and I am very pleased with my education system.
