I go to Gainesville High and it's one of the most diverse school I have seen, people all over the world, all races, and beliefs goes here. Teachers and administrators will provide everything for their students. The school's spirit is off the roof!

The Hall County school district has proved to me the significance of connection between the district and the students involved. The hall county school district has strived highly to ensure the safety and comfort of their students. During COVID19, the district has remained very helpful to the juniors and seniors. They planned out a safe graduation, which satisfied most of the seniors. They ensured that the seniors would receive their diplomas. Also, they have taken into account the mentality of the students especially during these new changes as we weren’t able to go back to school. Surveys were sent out and few teachers sent out care packages. For example, when picking up my summer assignment my teacher left a few fun activities inside the package. Such gift really made me happy and i felt relieved. Why relieved? Because the district made sure that we were doing well during online classes and ensured that our grade wouldn’t be damaged.
I attend the University of North Georgia, and to be honest I had doubts. When I first applied, I planned to get the general requirements out of the way and then transfer to a “better” school with a “higher reputation.” However, my first year attending convinced me otherwise. The staff are knowledgeable professionals of their area of study and are constantly going above and beyond to not only help their students in class, but also outside of the classroom through internships, real-world learning experiences, as well as fueling one of the few institutions that not only allow, but promote, undergraduate research. An education at UNG has motivated me to change my original plan of earning a bachelors degree, to attending medical school. I am forever grateful for my time at University of North Georgia. It surprised me, motivated me, and taught me some of the most valuable lessons I think I will ever learn in my lifetime.
