Here at my school, they do the most so that they can prepare me for college. Also, teachers have amazing relationships with students. For example, my advisory is the best part of the day because we get to be ourselves the most during that period. Everyone at the school is treated with respect and always cared for, even if the student doesn't care that much. I really like my school because I met amazing people that guided me into making good decisions. Plus, the friends that I made are amazing because they care for me and always have a good time with me. Overall, I believe my school is one of the best schools in the city.

My experience at CICS was very productive due to my high participation in extra curricular programs such as being President of Student Council, being able to bring my talents to our school events, and also being social among my peers. Without those attributes, my experience wouldn't have been so well developed. Coming in as a transfer student was very easygoing and allowed me to mature as a student and as a person. My personal connections to my teachers and staff helped me grow and recognize the social issues that were amongst the student body and staff. If I could change one thing about my experience would be to help create better programs and incentives for students who deserve them. I'd also change the structure of the ways the teachers interact with parents and students.
My overall experience at this school is great. Since freshmen year, I have felt welcomed and comfortable being in school. Students help each other and the teachers are very helpful. They make sure their students are on top of their assignments, and they provide us with many resources to help with our assignments. Students receive consequences, such as no privileges, if they have a F in a class. I think this is a good thing because students will begin to motivate themselves to do better in classes.
