The Appleton Area school District was a great school district. There weren't many problems and the very few that there were, were fixed almost immediately. The teachers truly cared for their students and wanted the best for them and their futures. I personally felt comfortable and welcomed in the Appleton Area school District. It was a district that excelled in quite a few areas that allowed students to follow their career pathways and progress. There were so many opportunities in the district to help a student grow and learn especially in High school.

The Appleton Area school district is a great place to learn and grow. The opportunities available for middle and high school students to take advantage of come in variety. Appleton Kaleidoscope Academy is a charter middle school focused on the arts, technology and project focused work to improve students' skill balancing projects, homework and life which prepare students for high school and beyond. Appleton West, East, North High Schools have various charters available for students. Renaissances School of the Arts at West is open to improve artistic skills. A-Tech is open for people moving toward innovative jobs in the machine and technology fields. Advanced classes provide wide range of options for higher education for example as CAPP World Literature and AP Psychology. Something I'd like to see added would be classes to helps students apply or prepare for colleges and scholarships since it can such a tedious and exhausting process for some.
My experience in the Appleton Area School District was better than I could have ever imagined. Not every single day was the best day of my life. School was very tough, and my teachers pushed me to be the best version of me. The educators that I was able to work with in the Appleton Area School district were second to none. The passion and the character that my educators carried throughout my years is what drove me to keep on working. I was able to create so many relationships with teachers, custiodians, other students, and coaches that I will always remember. Leaving the Appleton Area School District was tough at graduation, but I am thankful for the educators who worked hard to shape me into the young man I am today.
