I've had a wonderful academic and social high school experience. Since this is a mostly higher income community, there has been times I've felt isolated from my peers. What I would change is all the additional fees the school charges. For example, the yearly fee to park in the school lot $75, year book $75, Athletic pass $47...which I was unable to pay for. So I feel I missed out on somethings, though I'm sure I wasn't alone. At this time of graduating it's clear our family is in a different economic ranking. The majority of my peers have the financial support to go to college of their choice, while I have to figure it out on my own. My parents made enough to live in the community to give me oppourtunity to have a great education. Therefore, I am applying for this. Thank you!

Grosse Pointe Schools have some of the best teachers, scores, and athletics. Due to this, there is a lot of pressure on the kids that leads to unreasonable stress. Along with high expectations, there is near to no diversity. Most of the stress falls on the high schoolers. If you receive a B in a class it is considered failing, and if you don't participate in a varsity sport it's not worth doing. There is too much stress, and pressure on high school kids. To receive a 5 star there need to be outlets for the kids to go to with stress and anxiety, and there needs to be more diversity and teachings about different groups and cultures.
Grosse Pointe Michigan is unique in that to offers it residents public, catholic and private education choices. Knowing all three would provide a college ready education my family chose to go the public school route. Although Grosse Pointe Schools offer an array of classes to choose from without trying to pigeon hole me into one specific stereo type was very enticing. As was the fact that the honor classes have pushed me to learn more and not give up. What my parents wanted for me was to be well rounded and experience the real world. This they knew was something I might not get at a private school.
