Ardsley High School Reviews
The teachers at Ardsley High School are always there to help students succeed to the best of their abilities. Ardsley has an extra period after the eight mandatory class periods are over. This is called the "ninth period". The ninth period gives Ardsley students an opportunity to visit the teachers of their wanting in order to review educational material, study, take missed exams or for other reasons that will further help the student strive in their academic setting. Of course, the ninth period is not required for all students to use, therefore some students do not take advantage of the period. In the classroom, teachers all have the common goal to teach the students as much as possible throughout the corse. Every teacher has their own particular style of teaching, but overall they do indeed keep students interested in learning and have done a very good job in teaching the students at Ardsley High School.
Even though Ardsley High School has taken many steps to increase school security, more needs to be done to insure complete safety of the students who attend this school. Even though faculty members are required to carry ID, and that doors are well locked, the lack of physically security within the school creates a large loophole with regards to creating a very safe school. Many parents and members of the Ardsley community do not see crime as a threat to themselves and to students at the High School, which also creates an issue in which people are not fully acceptive to adding greater security measures within the facility. Yet, there are cameras, needs of ID, and occasionally the presence of protective security personal.
Overall, my high school experience has had a positive experience in my life. I believe that due to Ardsley's small population, being part of a small school has taught me a lot about myself. There are only so many kids that have the same common interests as you do when there are only around 150 kids in your grade. Having said that, in order to strive in a small school setting, you have to have a very open personality which will result in obtaining as many friends and acquaintances as possible. I can proudly say that I have created as many friends and bonds with students as I possibly could at Ardsley High School Having this said, I also learned that not everyone is accepting of who you are, and of the background that you come from. This is something that I have also accepted as an individual. The most important thing that I have learned through my 12 years in Ardsley is that you have to be accepting of yourself, and to not change yourself in order to be accepted by other. Because of this, I would most certainly attend Ardsley High School again if I could do it all over again, so that I can re-learn the very important pieces of information which has been taught to me inside and outside of the classroom.
