Overall going to this historic school has left me with great memories, though it is near downtown Atlanta and is being affected because of the change in the neighborhood, there is no shortage of amazing teachers that will help you fulfill anything you have your mind set to. The teachers and counselors are eager to help students who want to go to college and are just as eager to provide alternatives to those students who may think college is not right for them. This school also has an amazing dual enrollment program to either Georgis State, Clark Atlanta University, or Atlanta Metro. In these schools students are challenged by balancing high school work and college work, and many students never shy away from the challenge.

I love the passion the teachers and administrators have to push us to succeed. My school is an amazing historical monument that i take great pride in. We have great organizations such as FBLA, HOSA, FCCLA, and SGA. I am currently the president of my local FBLA chapter. Also our student government plays an important role in student life. The student government listen to our demands and talks to the principle and meet our negotiations. As the president of Fbla I am constantly informing my peers Fbla is a driven organization that produces leaders in the future.
My experience at The Booker T Washington High School of Atlanta GA, has taught me to look at life from a different perspective. The staff of the building were generous and made sure the history of our school stayed alive. As an Alumni of this school, I would love to see a modern change on how certain things are operated in the school. students don't get the chance to live through their own generations because certain things are still about tradition from decades ago. i wish to see this changes in the future so my former classmates and teachers can enjoy the same experience i have at Booker T Washington High School.
