Overall my school was rated average. The science professors at my current school were horrible. They expected one to already know the material before even starting the class. It was almost as if you were set up to fail the class. Many professors had the attitude of not caring about what they were teaching, which made it difficult to be engaged in the given topics. What I really loved about my school was the diversity. There were so many different cultures, which made it more interesting and fun. For example, on random days there would be activities for the different cultures where everyone would engage in. I would like the faculty to change because I believe that the faculty are very important when succeeding in your college career.
One of the biggest benefits of going to school in new haven, is the exposure to different people, culture, and methods of learning. I was able to explore the different biology focused programs that the Sound School offers, which helped me discover what I intended to do beyond high school. So, the variety and quality of education I received was stellar. Overall, the New Haven school district is good but there are still flaws in the school system. Such as safety, facilities, and food. At most schools in the New Haven district both elementary and high school, the security provided to young students is of very low quality. It is a combination of the quality of security officers that are hired, and also security procedures that are executed incorrectly. Such as checking bags both entering and leaving the schools, patrolling both inside and outside of the buildings, reporting all assaults to staff, and reducing physical conflicts between students.
