My Exprience with Armstrong has been very interesting. I noticed that a lot of things in our school need to be changed immediately but in my opinion the Mayor in our city dosen't care about our school since we're a unaccredited school. We're also surrounded by four projrects in aour area so that kinda effects the way the students act in our school if you ask me. But if i could change one thing about Armstrong High School It would be the whole school because the school is really old to the point its breaking down slowly and the supplies we have are not up to date mainly becasuse the school doesn't have a lot a money to support that it. The teachers, principle, and staff can stay because most of them try at least help the students pass instead of failing.

Armstrong high school has a rich history and background regarding African American education and this year it is our mission our mission to restore our legacy within the school and community. Armstrong is located in the heart of our urban neighborhood which provide a strong culture among students. The school used to have the name Kennedy High School which transfered to Armstrong-Kennedy to later on dropping the last name and keeping Armstrong for good. Although students from these urban areas attend this school, we try to make the best out of what we have and what is provided to us. Sometimes it may not be the best but we continue to push through and make full accredidation.
By each student come from a different background they want something out of life but don't know where to start. You might think what you see on the news is right but you don't walk the halls every day like I do. I go to school with people who loses someone from gun violence. I have walked the halls with students who have died not a year after they graduated. We do have to students that become parents at a young age but they still graduate. I know that does justify why we riot or fight but some people do have to realize Armstrong is field with different project where kids are now growing up to claim a street they do not own or did not create but they fight and sadly kill over it. You cannot judge the school by what you hear on the news because there are some good students in the building they are just being shadowed by students I believe need more guidance base of the situations some of them been through.
