Berrien Springs High School had the potential to be one of the best schools in the county. However, as a student it feels as though administration and most teachers rarely care about their students. I do not feel prepared to even apply to the schools of my choice or anything. However, even if I wouldn't say its a great school or even a good one on some days, there are many experiences here that I wouldn't have had anywhere else. Not all may be good, most days felt like a waste of time or a filler until I can find freedom or happiness after graduation.

Up until coming to Berrien, I had only ever attending private schools. I didn't know quite what to expect, but was thoroughly surprised by all that my experience ended up becoming. I didn’t realize how far behind my past private school really had been in most academic areas. Berrien pushed me to become better academically. I made some of my closest friends in the many clubs that the high school, specifically, had to offer. The music program was the highlight of my years in high school and have some of my fondest memories so far. The PLTW program is also something to take advantage of as a student.
I had the opportunity to get to know students from various backgrounds and cultures. This allowed me to gain a true appreciation of diversity. There were also many types learning options available to students. Throughout my entire high school career, I was enrolled in extended learning opportunities such as Project Lead The Way as well as the Professional Health Careers Academy.

I would have appreciated more staff members showing students that they cared about them personally. I had teachers show that they care but they were the exception, not the rule.
