I am excited to start my journey into PTA at Caldwell community college. So far, I believe the program and the teachers will all be excellent for my education. I have seen how they choose to gauge the criteria for their programs and am super excited. Making sure that reading comprehension is very high on the list because students who have trouble reading and understanding what they've read, would most certainly have a poor time making it through.

When I first attend to South Caldwell High School I was devastated. I did not want to move from my old high school. The teachers made me feel welcome to South Caldwell. The clubs and activities are good I only joined Future Business Leaders of America. We had fun activities and fundraiser. The administration and Facilities are nice and helpful to the students who attends to South Caldwell. There food is not so great but that goes for all public schools. South Caldwell make sure we are safe, they lock all doors at 8 o clock in the morning until school ends. All students and faculties have to wear a Id so we can recognize each other faces. Caldwell County Schools are great because they made sure we push ourselves to the next level and that was graduating and going off to college.
Being a student in Caldwell County has been a great experience. The close-knit environment is always welcoming and everyone you pass greets you nicely. Considering everyone knows everyone, it makes the schools more in tune with the students and their ability to teach in a great manner is on a whole different level than other places. Kids want to learn and what to do great in schools, I wouldn't change a thing!
