I transferred to Clay County High School at the beginning of my senior year and can honestly say it was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. My first day, I was so overwhelmed with friendly greetings. Everyone did everything to their ability to make sure I was comfortable in my new setting. I quickly made valued friends and bonds with my teachers. On a different note, the academics really surprised me. The amount of AP and college classes that were offered shocked me. The quality of these classes have been very fulfilling to say the least. Another thing to love about Clay is all of the clubs you can get into. Almost everyone is in more than one club. Clubs prepare young students how to deal with real life situations, which I think is important. Overall, Clay County High School has left a major impact on me, as well as many others. Transferring my senior year was a little bit nerve wracking but it turned out to be one of the best things ever!

The teachers at my high school are extremely invested in my academic future, and have been the biggest supporters on my journey to success! They truly go out of their way to ensure a comfortable, judge-free environment for all of the students. That is why I classify them as my favorite aspect of my school.
I spent four years at this school. I guess you could call it “Tanner High”, where the last name that you have matters. Almost every teacher has a favorite, but I thank the very few who did not favor some over others. If I must really thank anyone over all it would be the ones who bullied me and made me feel at my lowest... thank you for making me who I am today. You have made me realize I am such a better person than you all will ever be. One last word to the principal: Never push your students to the side and say you are busy. I realize being a principal can be a lot of responsibility, but when a student comes to you in confidence for help or to speak to you, never reply with “Can you make this quick? I’m busy.” anytime the student comes by.
