Camelback High School is the coolest school ever! I enjoyed my experience through the various clubs and sports I was involved with. First, I love the school mascot (Spartans!). As Spartan Alumni, I learned so much about what it means to be a student. It is not just about excelling in the class or meeting the expectations, but about gaining the skills needed before entering the adult world. I loved all of my high school teachers and I never had a problem with any. All my teachers truly cared about my education and me as a person. They don't just look at you as a student they have to teach, but they help bring you up and think about your future and career desires. However, one thing that I would like to see improvement on is the school spirit amongst students! School spirit is important if one wants to gain the whole experience of high school. I feel like high school is one of the greatest four years of a person's life that teaches you many lessons. Sometimes, I wish I could go back!

I went into Camelback Highschool my second semester of freshman year and it was such an amazing experience compared to my prior highschool. I was showed around the school by a student who showed me where all my classes would be and given advice about how everything functions on campus. Everyone was very welcoming and the teachers have such a positive attitude that radiated off others beautifully. The teachers were so encouraging and wanted to engage with there students about anything and everything, whether it be a concern they had or just someone to talk to brighten up that students day. Additionally, there are so many programs that provide many opportunities that would benefit students future. They also provide a lot of information about colleges and how you should go about that process. My 4 years going to Camelback highschool has been amazing and am grateful to have been able to attend such a phenomenal school.
I loved my time at Camelback highschool, I am so sad that it is over and my senior year was cut so short. At camelback, students really create a bond with their teachers and counselors and really feel happy to be in class. The school provides so many opportunities and clubs, students can definitely find something that suits them. I enjoyed doing after school sports, you really had fun and created a bond with your teammates and coaches. The bus rides and practice times are memories that I will forever cherish. I also had fun with the countless activities the school provided, the assemblies, lunch activities and after school parties and dances. There was always something to do and I made a lot of fun memories. If I had to change anything about Camelback, it would be the scenery. But luckily their changing it after class of 2020 graduates. I would like to see the school become cleaner with new outdoor benches and a new field with better grass.
