The Nashua School District has been a great foundation for my education. I have had so many opportunities that other school districts do not offer. For example, Our high schools have CTE programs that allow students to take classes that are related to the career a student wants to take after high school. I am in the health sciences program, which is giving helping me the first steps to becoming a professional healthcare provider. The sports teams have also been a great opportunity for me to show me how to use teamwork to accomplish common goals. Lastly, the Nashua school district provides many essential clubs, such as HOSA to help and give back to the community.

The Nashua School district is great overall, there are a few things that could make it almost perfect. Unfortunately this school focuses too much on sports instead of clubs. You see football get thousands of dollars every year and the coaches also get compensated greatly, then if you take a look at the clubs they get very little to sometimes no funding, mentors and faculty running them usually don't get compensated. Also the food of the Nashua School District is very poor, you know it is poor when none of the staff gets the food there and most kids bag lunch. I know they have certain health restrictions to abide by the price of lunch keeps going up and the portion sizes are still small. Most kids that only get school lunches are still hungry after lunch which distracts them taking away from there education.
Nashua school district changed people lives. I came to Nashua two years ago with my family. None of use knew English. After going to school for about a year, I knew how to start a conversation with someone in English and my siblings too. Teachers at school are so nice and patient with us students. They try to understand and help us to give the best that we know. Right now I can say that I'm fluent in English thanks to my teachers. I am so glad that I had so much nice teacher that supported me during that hard time of learning a new language that I didn't know anything about. I'm so happy about that and that gave me the motivation to continue learning languages. I now know six different languages and I'm willing to learn more as I continue my education and persuade my goals.
