I enjoyed the diversity of not only races but ethnicity and origin that allowed me to have a rich/cultured friend group growing up. I also appreciated their strict stance on bullying, although I believe the parties involved should not be subject to equal punishment if one is clearly more at fault. I liked the standard of cleanliness the school was maintained at and am grateful that most teachers truly cared for students and their success. I believe the school dress code needs to be amended so as not to be as disproportionately restrictive towards females or at least just as restrictive for the males as for the females. I also think the school should allow teachers more freedom to remove those continuously disrupting the classroom while others are attempting to learn. Lastly, I strongly suggest higher standards of time-efficiency for academic counselors filling out college recommendations as these delays nearly cost a few friends their schools of choice and unrivaled scholarships.

Within the Cobb County District, I attended Campbell High School for all four years of my high school career. Campbell High School is most known for its renowned International Baccalaureate Program, and I would boast that our school has the best IB program in the state. Anyone can be prejudice based on the physical appearance of our high school; it's exterior not the most attractive thing this 68-year old building has to offer. However, the school is founded on a community of high achieving students that constantly push themselves not against each other, but together. Campbell High School is a place where I was not only able to grow intellectually, but emotionally. I was constantly surrounded by people who pushed me to be better, do better, and believe in myself. The teachers were not shy with their students and connected with each and every one of us. They would never hesitant to lend a helping hand, becoming our mentors through educational guidance making it unforgettable.
I really like the Cobb County School system because of the teachers. From my personal experience, I believe the teachers here have three characteristics: they are kind, helpful, and knowledgable. They effectively do their job and waste no time going out of their way to help students. As always, there are some students that don't see how good it is to have an education. Our teachers help the students see the need for education and the opportunity one can have in the future. They encourage the students to push themselves to achieve that good grade. Some students are really struggling in school and may have trouble learning. Cobb teachers will happily share the knowledge they carry to the students so they can have a better understanding of both the school world and the real world. Preparing the students for the real world can be extremely stressful and aggravating, but a student will always remember the one teacher that helped them to prepare for and understand the real world.
