I have gone to school in Amphitheater public schools all of my years but one. In my younger years at Harelson Elementary School I had the best, most caring teachers, a great learning experience, and some unforgettable friends. Cross Middle School was different, I felt the teachers didn't care, the classes were out of control, students behaved poorly, and there was no sense of community. When I finally graduated eighth grade and went to Canyon Del Oro High School my experiences were similar. People were doing bad stuff all over campus, my first day freshman year I remember seeing my first fight right next to me. People were mean, teachers weren't helpful and I didn't learn a thing. Overall my high school experience was terrible and I felt like the whole thing was pointless.

I loved the diversity and spirit within this district! I was given the same opportunities as all my other peers, yet given the decision to run for our dreams it or not. I felt like everyone got the opportunity to excel if they chose to and with the help and support of many lovely teachers it was a great community to be a part of. During events when the schools in the district came together, it felt like we were one.
