I have had an amazing experience at Coral Reef Senior High. Although, I might not be able to complete my senior year at school, I am grateful for all the memories I have been able to create. The teachers have helped me grow and learn more than I ever thought I would. This school has further ignited my passion for medicine and learning. The staff at Coral Reef work endlessly to make sure we have a memorable experience. The pep rallies, homecoming games, dances, and activities have all been unforgettable. I will be truly sad to leave this school but I am excited for the journey that lies ahead of me. If there was one thing I could change it would be the cleanliness of the school. At times there is no toilet paper left in the bathrooms or they are dirty. However, I know the janitors work very hard and I respect everything they do. Go cudas!
Being a senior at coral reef senior high, has been the best four years of my life yet. The school has such a big population, till this day I'm always meeting new friends. There might be a mean math or history teacher but there is always another adult who is open to listen and support you whether its another teacher or an administrator. I love the school so much, I decided to join the cheerleading team. It has been my favorite activity ever! Although theres always needed improvements. The mirrors are hard to see yourself in, the sink isn't clean, and all around its a unusable, uncomfortable, and again, a dirty place to use the restroom. But the school as a whole has really been the best experience with their school spirit and amazing programs like the nursing program like I'm in now that lets me volunteer at hospitals which I am very passionate about. I'd definitely recommend my school to any incoming freshman and am thankful for what it has done for me the past four years.
