I graduated a few years ago. Like many high schools, its underfunded but does try to make the most of what it has. What the school instills in its students is far more valuable than the knowledge from a book; its the idea that you can strive and overcome challenges and roadblocks. We went through several administrative changes even before i reached high school, and our budget was cut several times due to Connecticut's difficult politics. While i cant go into toomuch detail, i can say that the students and teachers who want to make something good happen, will. When they want to host fundraisers, put on shows, sports events, etc., the Classical community comes through.

When I began, I was nervous and alone. However, I quickly made friends throughout my grade. Something good about this school is that there are very few "cliques." I know everyone in my grade. However, there are always the people who cause trouble. It has sadden me lately to see people not care about their academics, which i know in part is the schools fault. The environment is different, middle schoolers are becoming more hectic each year and refuse to be disciplined.
I chose to go to Classical magnet because the students there are known to go to good colleges. I think that it is great that Classical focuses on college readiness. The work may be challenging, but it is only to prepare us for college. I would like to see people have more school spirit. Since our school has been having many financial troubles, the students have been restricted from things that they want to do.
