Constitution High School was like a great big family! Although with every family comes disagreements and issues. My teachers there were always so caring and nurturing, there was never a reason for someone to be failing. If someone didn't understand something or just needed that extra help, there was a teacher and a friend there for you. We had the options of staying back a class, staying after school, whatever worked best for you worked best for them. They would literally put their lives on hold for us, their children. The students themselves were also hard workers, especially the athletes. Now, there were a few things we could have improved in. We definitely could have had more groups and clubs. Groups and clubs are great to keep young teenagers out of the streets and busy in school. I loved high school, especially mines. I would definitely recommend my high school to any middle schooler. Great family and a great location which also came with it's perks!

Constitution has given me an amazing high school experience. I have learned the importance of community, delegation, and leadership. Academically, It has prepared me for my future by challenging me to think critically and apply what I learn in the classroom to the real world. The staff are always caring and looking to better you in any way possible. The students are a special group full of great minds and outgoing personalities.
I graduated in 2017. My experience here was pretty pleasant. Although some teachers have left since my freshman year until my senior year, they definitely care about you and your grades. The rules have changed, the school seems to be more uniform now. The students should definitely take advantage of the resources available to them. I wish I had known about dual enrollment my sophomore year, it would've saved me some time and money once I got into university. But the atmosphere has always been warming, the students, for the most part, are hardworking and kind. The location is very convenient
