From the cold October nights watching Varsity football games, entertaining school plays, and diverse student body, Badger High has it all. My four years at this school were met with great pleasure, wonderful students and staff, and an overall great atmosphere to learn. While there is the occasional hiccup in the daily routine, whether that be annoying people in the hallway or a staff member making your day hell, things went by fairly without disruption. Time from freshman first day to now of my final months at Badger have flew by, and looking back now I couldn't have asked for a better school to go to for my High School education.

The science classes offered at Badger are excellent, some of the labs done in class were the same labs I did in college classes. The other classes are good as well, there wasn't a single class that I wouldn't have learned anything in so long as I applied myself. Some of the homework load is unreasonable for high school students though. While some of my favorite teachers come from Badger, some of the teachers have apparent favorites and there is definitely a huge clique and bullying problem. Also, most of the administration is crabby and seems like they don't even like kids.
Badger is a great place to be, academically speaking. However, this school also has 1,400 people, meaning that it's very easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle. There are many opportunities, but nobody will ever make you get involved; You must do it yourself. As for friends, it's very easy to make acquaintances with 1,399 other people around you, but it's difficult to ignore the cliques and find yourself. Overall, it's a great academic school, but a very high-school-drama-movie environment.
