I’ve spent my twelve years of schooling within the lake county school district, while for the most part I had a great high school experience especially, there are things this county can improve on. My high-school is now a digital discovery school, as an online flex student my self I found the addition helpful to complete my course work faster. I also had the chance to be an inaugural member of our schools first winter guard, an amazing experience I will not forget. Even though, there are several art clubs and events throughout the year, there are improvements to be made. For example the auditorium is extremely outdated and needs to updated, though the schools beatification is improving due to the addition of several murals.

As I approach my final days as a high school student my overall experience with lake county schools has been mediocre. I would like to acknowledge that Lake County schools are exceedingly considerate of the safety of students, which I highly appreciate. Although I haven't had a deplorable experience, I would suggest Lake County Schools prioritize and incorporate additional college readiness programs for high school students. They should find a higher quality of resources for students as well as faculty members. Supply textbooks and technology appropriate for circumstances, so teachers can improve engagement of students who will later be confident and well-informed, and succeed academically.
While attending East Ridge in Lake County, I noticed a lot of things that were amazing. For instance, having opportunities like free lunch, clothing, tutoring, driving classes, and et cetera. But what I would like to see change is the level of interactions admin have with the students. I never really saw administration taking the time to simply ask how students were doing. I feel that if you want/expect better from all students you need to build the relationship of wholeness, love, and trust.
