High School is obviously a very controversial stage in an adolescents life and for me I had my ups and downs through my career at Cromwell High School. I'd like to say that attending Cromwell High School is what made me who I am today because I learned so much there, from friends, teachers, classes and so on. Overall, my experience there was amazing and I appreciate the time I had spent at Cromwell High School!

I feel that Cromwell High School offers a good variety of classes in order for a student to become well rounded and try new classes. All the way from several different history courses to new innovated robotics and gym classes. I felt that I had many opportunities for my academics inside the school, but I also feel that they should offer more outside of school activities for students to bond and experience new things outside the classroom. Offer more trips to Boston, New York, and Washington D.C. to get us to see our surroundings and have an unclose view of what we are actually learning. The principal typically shoots ideas like this down and doesn't allow the school to do much so I hope in future years this changes. The school is a great environment and I have made many lasting relationships with people throughout my four years and I am grateful for that opportunity Cromwell High gave me.
I enjoy the atmosphere of the school and how much teachers want students to learn. It offers a wide range of activities outside of school to allow students to create more friendships as well as to develop various traits, such as leadership. However, I wish clubs and sports other than football and basketball were promoted and emphasized more. Also, on the academy's side, I wish the school offered more AP classes to help students feel more comfortable with going to college, but the AP classes offered are well-taught and challenging. Overall, my experience at Cromwell High School is very good.
