I think that there is a lot that can be approved to help this school. Academics wise, there should be a better connection between students and teachers. Through my experience, the better the teachers, the more willing the students are to learn. This being said, I could only say that about half the teachers throughout my Elementary through High school life, were serious about teaching. To be an active member in these schools is quite a challenge, as half of the clubs and activities available require the student to go above and beyond to participate. Involving many hours that cut into class time, a lot of the times it was a much smart idea to go to class instead of going to your club. Parents are encouraged to be actively involved, and that is something I can truly appreciate. The schools I went to themselves were very serious about college readiness and had many opportunities given to the students.

I attended Little Rock Central High School and thrived. The class I took and teachers I had pushed me to not only do my best but also inspired me to enjoy school. There were times when I was completely stressed out due to the academic rigor but there were so many other times I learned and thrived, all thanks to this school. By the time I graduated, I had built so many lasting friendships and learned so much. The diversity at the school really impacted me as well and taught me a lot. Funding was an issue but that was not the school's fault and hopefully will be fixed when I send my kids to this school!
As a freshman, I enjoyed the atmosphere and the surroundings that I was in when opening the doors of Parkview Arts Science Magnet High School. The teachers treat you like family, and they genuinely care about you and your future. The students are diverse and well rounded. We are exposed to many opportunities provided by our counselors. All and all, The experience was amazing. Though, the change progressively got more challenging but that's something that I wasn't surprised because it's Parkview.
