At Caldwell High School the staff do not expect much from us. They do not give us a challenging curriculum, don't have us write papers, the students are not being prepared for college, and many other things. The school also will change things to heighten their graduation rate. For example, my friend's sister was flunking every class except two, which were D's and hadn't turned in her Senior Project. The school went and said that if she baked brownies for a shelter then wrote a paper, which she also turned in late, she could graduate. Another thing. My Junior year of High School was the last year they did Senior Projects. Why? Simply because it's too hard on the teachers to grade the papers and look at a presentation of the project.

Some of the experiences I had were great, and others were fantastic! I participated in sports my first year there and did not appreciate the coaching styles and how they favored many of the students who's parents worked there. I quit sports and joined choir and theatre. I will never regret doing this, because choir and theatre taught me so much about myself and life. Caldwell Sr. High School had an outstanding arts program there and that was what the school was known for. If I had a choice, I would chose this school again, because the arts taught me and others so much and I made many lifelong friends in the process.
I like that Caldwell High is a very diverse community and offers several opportunities to their students. I like that Caldwell High has several different elective programs they could choose from, such as Choir, CNA Program, Welding, Auto Body, and many more. One thing I feel that Caldwell High can improve on is simply spreading out their funds to more programs other than sports. It seems to a lot of students that only the sports bring in money and good words, but so does the Choir program. Being a student in the Choir program, we are in dire need of small fixes in our main room and practice rooms, but we were told that there wasn't enough funds to support the fixes, but the school will gladly offer money to the sports programs and such.
