I was not always in a school system like Muscle Shoals City Schools. I was in a place where I wasn't getting the help I needed; however, once I moved to the school, I was met with a sense of hospitality and desire for progress. In the first month of my journey, I had experienced an amazing change in my personality and desire for higher education. Deeper into my journey, I was met with a huge black hole, but the hospitality that I had been met with was shown until I got back on my feet. One thing I would change is more attention to the arts and not just painting. We have the most amazing art programs, but most people don't pay attention to them, because information for is not shared enough.
I have to say that our school is one of the better schools in the area. The teachers prepare students for upcoming grades and college in the best ways possible. In recent years all the schools in the system have gotton access to top notch resources such as chrome books and up to date textbooks and such. All schools have many clubs and organizations to choose from, but there could still be more. Sports is very important here but I feel like the arts deserve more attention than they are given. The food in both the cafeteria and the vending machines has improved in recent years, it tastes much like you would expect from a school cafeteria with plenty of options, but I feel there are few things that could change.
