Growing up, going through the Houston County School District has been a privilege. I learned to be independent in many ways and focus on learning to further my education so as a member of the next generation, I could improve society. Our school system is in an Air Force base town and because of that, I have gone to school with a diverse group of children and perceived a variety of backgrounds and beliefs because of it which has helped our schools, I believe, become a more understanding and successful learning environment. Our teachers, strive to push us and help us when we are struggling with learning the materials and give us multiple opportunities to better ourselves and our grades. Along with pushing us, teachers have shown us there are in fact different paths of life we can take to be successful and they are always there for encouragement.

High school is alright; my freshmen and sophomore years were a cakewalk. I was immature and very laughable those years; when I got to my junior year, things got very stressing and I started to hang less and less with my friends because I spent more time worrying about my classes. Senior year is also very stressful, and I got very lazy. However, my senior year was full of surprises, such as the fact that I started to like class more, and alot of students and teachers actually acknowledge like me when it comes to art (which was new in my occasion, because in my first three years of high school, I didn't talk to girls very many because I was shyer). High school has changed me big time; I act more intelligent , and I'm trying to be more keen. However, I always have regretted procrastinating when it came to studying.
Academics-wise, this school district is perfect. There are plenty of teachers and staff who truly want to help you throughout your experience in school. There are plenty opportunities to get ahead in your education as well, with local colleges doing duel enrollment programs and a Career Academy that offers programs in specific career fields. The only thing I would have to say is that, although Houston County is a very diverse school system, the lack of representation was obvious. Many students of color and students of different sexual orientations and gender identities didn't feel very represented. I saw this through my own experiences at Veterans High School. Other than that, which could be easily fixed, Houston County is a great school district with
