Something that I would like to see different is for the school to be more funded. Due to the lack of money we are not getting to experience that "high school life" because we don't have any a sports besides soccer, for any event we want or fun things to do our grade is responsible to fundraise money but only allowed 2 food sales a year! We rarely have any field trips, we've been to a few college tours.

My over all experience in this charter school Lionel Wilson has made me the person who I am today because I've learned so many useful things that are going to prepare me after I graduate. I've been in Lionel since 6th grade and now I'm a senior.All these year that I've been here I've had great teachers that had helped me to reach my goals and for me to be prepared for the college.This school mostly wants students to be academically and mentally prepared for college because college is no easy route.For example, one of my weaknesses was that I didn't read a lot, but since the school has enforced us to read more during class and home my reading has improved.Also, I used to have bad grades but with the help that I've gotten from my teachers my grades have changed for good, which I'm glad about it.
Problems come and go with the staff but the teachers never let that get in their way when they teach. Teachers become like your friends. You vibe with your classmates very well and they become family. The rules with the uniform are very irrelevant because we aren't permitted to wear hoods and we have to have a certain all black no logo jacket on. We can only use the restroom 2 times a day. The hyphy movement exists here because of the energy each grade level brings, every year its different. Teachers act like the students in order to get along with them, they gain way more respect when we are able to notice that they can vibe with us and that they're not just our teachers.
