Austin Senior High School Reviews

My school is pretty small in comparison to other high schools throughout the country, but is large by the southeastern Minnesota standards. The thing that I think needs the most improvement at my school would have be academic support and college readiness. The majority of students at my school either don’t care about their education/don’t feel there is a reason to care, or they don’t have the support in order to succeed academically. If the students saw the benefits of a good education they would put more effort in trying to succeed in high school. This could done by showing the students where good grades and a good work ethic get you in life. In comparison, the best thing about Austin High School is the sport and music. Everyone in the school district loves the sports and music at our school and everyone involved derives happiness from these activities. If people put in as much effort into their education as their sports or music, then our school would thrive.

My experience at Austin Senior High School varies. From the good times to the bad. Usually, in surveys about your high school experience, you're supposed to talk about all the football games and drama. But I would like to talk about how Austin Senior High School has changed my life. Freshmen year, also known as "the year the upperclassmen bully you." My first year taught me to trust my gut feeling in every difficult situation. Moving onto the sophomore year. The sophomore year taught me to live every moment like it's your last. Junior year was a little more difficult, it taught me to never look back once you've taken a step forward. Austin Senior High School has always had something to offer for everyone. Not only has the school taught me many things, but has helped me with some of my biggest challenges. As I move into my senior year at Austin Senior High School, I look forward to the everlasting memories it has given me throughout the past 3 years.
I really liked the diversity in Austin High School. It helped me understand how everyone comes from a different background and not everyone has it easy. It made me appreciate my life and all of the little things I have that I take for granted. I have some of my best and worst memories at Austin High. I wouldn’t trade my time there for anything. It has taught me to treat people with kindness because I have no idea what that person could be going through. Everyone is there to learn, so everyone should be treated with no judgement. However, I wish teachers would help more with college readiness. Thankfully, I was eligible for PSEO, which means I could take classes at the colleges for free. That prepared me well for after graduation. Plus, I had support from family members who have recently gone through the college readiness process, so they helped out a lot. I’m very grateful to have them. Also, I wish that students were given a strong support system in the college readiness process.
