I am very fond of my school, Blythewood High, because we, the students, are given multiple opportunities to be involved and expand our knowledge. An example would be when e were given the opportunity to shadow the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) staff at the Children's Hospital through our Health Science program. Blythewood is also very diverse and the teachers practice "the open door" policy to all students. This makes me feel safe and confident enough to share my thoughts and ideas. Being involved and allowing students to help with school projects, such as Freshman First and Orientation, is another quality I love about Blythewood High School. Overall, I am proud to be a bengal!
