Conard High School Reviews
My time at Conard high school has gone by quickly, and I would say it was a pretty average high school experience. Some of the teachers had some favoritism problems, and of course there were your usual “popular” cliques. But there some teachers who will have a lasting impression on me, such as my freshman year Earth Science teacher who made it the best class I’ve taken throughout high school. Another is my freshman year Algebra 1 teacher who always seemed in a good mood, and was wonderful at making math (my least favorite subject) one of my favorite classes. There are definitely some things I didn’t like, one of them being that the student body wasn’t very inclusive, but overall, my experience at Conard is one that I’ll reflect upon with a smile and a sense of nostalgia years from now, and since it’s coming to an end so soon, I’ve realized how much I’ll miss it.
I loved that all of the teachers were always willing to stay after school and help me with whatever I needed. I also enjoy the fact that it is so easy to get involved and make friends because everyone is so welcoming. I wish that Conard had better food because I have had to bring lunch every day since Freshman year in order to eat! I hope that Conard stays exactly the way it is, but I hope that freshman become more involved so that the school can keep gaining a better reputation.
Conard was an amazing high school, not only did I meet some of my best friends that I'll know for the rest of my life, but I also got an education that prepared me extremely well for college and even beyond. Ever since I began there the administration was recommending that I take their advanced placement tests because it would get me used to the intensity and course load of college classes. Since the school was so large, roughly 1600 kids, it was impossible for the administration to know each kid very well but they genuinely wanted each and every one of us to succeed in life. While they prepared us for college they also taught us what different types of jobs would be like through the electives that they offered. They ranged from manufacturing small-scale mechanical parts to carpentry to painting. It truly was a great school.
