My experience with the Little Rock School District is pretty well, it’s had ups and downs but overall my school district is well managed. I enjoy the fact that teachers from all over schools will keep contact with one another to make each school as great as possible. Eventually some schools will come together to unite and stand together as one to make a change in our District for the best of teachers, students, and staff. One thing that I would like for my District to change is the payment of teachers and staff, they deserve more because teachers help us get prepared for our future, staff helps maintain the school safe and clean day to day. Our teachers are putting so much effort to keep us going and prepare us for the real world after high school, it took them so much to be where they are now, we should be thankful for them and everyone else that helps us to be who we are now. The teachers I’ve had in my past 13-14 years have been the greatest and I appreciate them very well.

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!
