I have only attended two school districts in my life, which isn't an astonishing number at all. However, out of the two, Bland will always be my favorite. I have also observed other school districts, and Bland still seems to top them! Bland High School is an A+ rating school with kind and encouraging faculty, wonderful students, and a positive aura. It is a small school, no doubt, and could probably used and upgraded building. However, we work with what we have got, and we make the best of it!

Well, I transferred there my senior year and it was completely different from DISD. Bland High school didn't really have clubs that students can participate. The majority of students would leave home after school was finished. I just wished students and teachers would get involved in creating clubs, for example, art club, science club, math club, or anything. But overall, Bland was great, the staff was welcoming and friendly with the students. No drama!
My experience in Bland High School has been great, I have had great teachers and they have helped me a lot throughout my years in high school, if it wasn't for the great help and care of my teachers, I would not be were I am now. It has not been an easy ride, there has been ups and downs but I have managed to get through every obstacle that came up, my teachers never gave up on me, they pushed me until I realized that I could do anything If I set my mind to it. Bland high school has helped me a lot, educationally as well as mental growth, everything I once doubted they helped me get through it and make it come true.
