The fact that of being around my friends and just enjoy my time with them. I also had favorite classes and teachers those were the classes I succeeded the most in. Getting to know myself as a person, learning experiences that I grew from. The challenges I would have to often take, such as multiple projects, essays, and readings challenged me as a person to work harder and to not procrastinate. My overall experience was pretty good. I can very much say that from my freshman year of high school to my senior year of high school I showed growth. One thing that I would change are the rules. I would say the rules were a little too strict for me.

Not too bad. The Students have improved tremendously since I have started. The teachers can be very caring if they choose to be. There is a lot of issues brought up to the administrative that I think can be resolved better than the way they solved them. Lunches were very small and don't thick about allergies students such as I have. Students walk around and the security guards allow them too. There isn't really a lot of discipline shown and when there is it is suspension. Teachers coursework is a good work load and certain teachers really show the difference from memorization and actually wanting their students to try and learn. No everything should be about the OST's
I loved my grade school, Pfeiffer Elementary. I had the best Kindergarten teacher on the planet. First grade was a little tough, no one really understood what was wrong with me. Finally, in second grade I go my IEP and things seem to go up from there. I won the lottery and attended National Inventors Hall of Fame, STEM Middle School and then the High School. The Middle school was great and the teachers were wonderful. I sort of got lost in the shuffle in high school. Since I was doing College Credit Plus classes, I didn't get the individual attention that I should have received. All in all, public school was good for me.
