I generally appreciate CCA. It may have some of the most disgusting, undercooked cafeteria food you will ever see at any high school, the school itself may be clique-based and freezing almost 24/7, but despite all that, it has some great things going for it, such as its passionate teachers and staff members who are often willing to help out struggling students. They don't put extremely high expectations on us but still want us to challenge ourselves in ways that will help us grow as people. Additionally, it's nice to see the various clubs and extracurriculars this school has to offer, ranging from Large Group Speech to Cross Country to Academic Decathlon. Overall, I have made some great friends and memories here, and though it has some issues, I believe students can get a decent high school experience from CCA.

Something that I admire about this school is that the teachers strive to educate the students to the best of their abilities and care about our success and want us to succeed. One thing that I would change about the school, targeted toward seniors specifically, is college readiness. In our district, many teachers accept late work and allow redos on homework and tests. I am not necessarily saying that this is a negative thing because it gives the students opportunities to fix and learn from their mistakes, but treating your final year of high school like college would greatly help. I have also brought up the idea of having mock-finals and mock-midterms to give the senior class of taste of what college tests and preparing for those tests are like.
I have has an average high school experience. I have really enjoyed many of my teachers and think that do a wonderful job of teaching. I have gained a lot of knowledge and appreciate all the work the staff puts into my learning experience. I take issue with how monopolized the faculty is. I have two major issues with the administration. One of which is how they immediately take sides without hearing full stories. Once an idea or notion is placed they run with it. My second issue is regarding the maturity level of some of the faculty members. There was an instance where I was ignored, removed from activities, and not spoken to at all by a staff member who decided they did not like me after one of my absence from a competition of which I notified them about. I talked with administration about this to share my concern and they agreed and sided with this staff member. This saddens me becasue it creates and unsetteling enviornment to be in as a student.
