I have attended Conrad Schools of Science since the 7th grade, and I am extremely grateful for my entire experience. Throughout my time at Conrad, I have built relationships with many of the students and teachers, always having someone there for advice and support. I played on the varsity volleyball team where I was captain for two years, along with varsity basketball and track. Conrad offers pathways which include bio-technology, animal science, computer science, nursing, and biomedical science which recur on your schedule every year of high school and help shape student’s interests and guide them for their future occupations. I believe that more artistic classes would improve student's creativity and problem solving abilities. Conrad has a band, but I think that students and their test scores would both benefit if they had the opportunity to take art classes.

I have absolutely loved my experience as Conrad Schools of Science. I have been attending the school for 7 years now. Every teacher in the building is so supportive and helpful. I have never had an issue with the staff or students at Conrad. There is rarely any bullying within the school and if there is, it is handled immediately and effectively. Every teacher has always been available to help a student who needed it and everyone is very kind and welcoming. It is such a great school if you want to enter the science field and will prepare you for most things. The only downside is that there are not many artistic outlets within the school due to it being a science based education but there are after-school clubs that will allow you to showcase your artistic abilities if you want.
Conrad is an interesting place to say the least. In the academic sense, it's pretty good. The classes are nice and there is plenty of help to get you prepared for college. Everything else is pretty average in my books. Teachers are definitely hit or miss. While I've enjoyed almost every science teacher in the school, I've only enjoyed one math teacher, who I didn't even have. Administration is pretty tight on things, such as dress code, which that is even a hit or miss. One month they'll throw out write ups left and right, and then not do anything for the next 3. As for classmates, you'll just need to find your group. If you don't find one quickly, you can still find friends, but most likely you'll get kinda bullied along with it. Lastly, food's wack. Except french toast stick days. Those are delicious.
