Before attending Collegiate High School I attended Boyd Buchanan and I was a cheerleader. I loved this and never thought I would want to change schools, but due to health issues I was unable to cheer so I began looking for more opportunities. Now that I am attending Collegiate High I able to do full time duel enrollment to get ahead in college! With my time there the faculty have been very helpful and want the best for me. They made sure to help me feel welcome and still continue to this day! I have loved every second of being there and I am looking forward to another year!

Grown in the south, being from California, the Hamilton county district offered great test to challenge my thinking and great teachers witch I've grown very found too. They are always in the students seeing how it's working out and I think that's great! Although one think I would like to see change in the locked up way they keep you in. I feel like a caged animal with no freedom or fresh air. I recommend they open up a window of atleast 15 mins throughout the day to let students breath and relax and be fresh and ready for the next class.
The experience has been amazing so far. I would like to see more diversity in the county along with administration. In addition, school safety is very important and would be greatly appreciated by parents to see additional SRO's in the school's. Furthermore, a mandatory uniform policy for both student and all staff members should be enforced. This is because, staff members are not dressing appropriately to their work environments. For instance, no dresses or skirts above the knee,proper footwear (no flip-flops)
