My experience at Cobalt Institute of Math and Science was excellent. The teachers and staff are nice to the students. Not only are they nice, but they re helpful and supportive to every single student that attends the school. The education system at the school is almost flawless, offering each and every student three different pathways to pursue. These pathways include biomedical, computer science, as well as engineering. On top of this, the school is currently expanding on their art program and what it has to offer. There are many clubs that the school offers as well, and each of them offer completely different experiences. I should know this due to the fact that i have participated in six of them. They could expand on preparing their students for the real world, meaning that they should teach their students how to do taxes, as well as how to take loans. They should teach us how to buy houses as well as cars, or just teach their students how to rent certain things.

The some of the teachers at this school are really helpful and also give really good advice on college. Most of staff are a bit rude especially Ms. Selina right when I walk in into her office I know hell is coming my way. Anyways some of the people at this school are really cool but, some of them are a pain in the butt. The food at this is really nasty but, I mean its like any other school BUT, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich SLAPS! That thing goes hard.
I believe this school is a very good high school mostly because it is very discreet. In most high schools there is lots of students which also makes a lot more distractions from education. My education is important and this school gives you a calm environment and it has very good education. What I like most is this school offers PLTW. PLTW is a a better way of learning. It allows a lot of students do hands on things. This is really important to me because I am a better learner when I am able to do it in real life. I also enjoy that this school gives me lots of motivation and inspirations that will help me be a bigger person in the future. This school also has very friendly students in some high schools freshmen get bullied a lot and this happens because they are new to the high school region, but in this school it is different. My first day in this school I actually had a junior help me out and show me were my classes were and she was really friendly. This school deserves five stars.
