I went to North Augusta High School and graduated in 2014 with a 3.6 GPA. While in high school I was a student-athlete and participated in football, basketball, and track. My experience is an overall positive one. While at this school my teachers were very helpful and would work with me when needed. Playing sports was something that made my high school experience more fun, without it taking away from my education. My coaches would push me to do better on the court or field as well as maintaining my grades in the classroom. My overall experience from high school was a good one, but if there was one thing that I could change, it would be for our school to have more updated textbooks and to have a rubber track for track and field events.

I have been attending Aiken County schools since I was in Kindergarten. My mother is a teacher in the Aiken County school system, so it is near and dear to our family's hearts. I have always enjoyed my time in Aiken County schools. I am now a senior in high school. I know the path that I want to take and this school system has well prepared me as I start my journey. I have two siblings that will follow in my footsteps and I can only hope that they leave this school system feeling as prepared as I do. However, I would like to see discipline being taken more seriously county wide. My teachers felt pressure not to send students to the office or write them up over a variety of offenses for fear of not being supported. These interruptions in class interfered with my need for learning to continue my path to college.
My time at silver bluff was fun but I couldn't really get the most out of it with the lack of school activities and clubs provided, the school mainly focused on academics and sports, which is great but at the same time it kinda ignored the other kids like me who excelled at other things. Drama club, band, and I would say our school choir aswell, but we didn't have one, things of the arts were often ignored, no rewards, hardly any showcasing of our talents, and barely even any clubs or classes to join in the first place, but even with that drawback it wasn't that bad since I was pretty academically strong myself, showing some form of skill while I was there and I found that I enjoyed my peers and the faculty that were around, making my experience at Silver Bluff some what uneventful but satisfying at the same time.
