My overall experience at Classical High school was pretty great, even with its ups and downs I still enjoyed my time there. Some highlights were being able to balance sports (volleyball and basketball) and academics. Even when I may have felt like I was drowning in work, practices, games, homework, etc. I knew there was always a person either a teacher or administration I could receive help from. Being in Classical’s graduating class of 2019 has become a bitter sweet moments because I will always miss my old run down school no matter how many imperfections you may see at a glance. Once you attend Classical, you truly get the sense of love and care everyone has for that place. Even on my worst day, my high school brought be joy everytime I walked through those purple doors. Classical will always be my home and I will forever bleed purple!
