I attend High Point High School.

It's not a very divers school the majority of the students are Latinos.

The teachers that I have had for the past for years-- for the exception of a few--are competent in their teaching abilities.

The fast and quality of the food depends on what period lunch you have.

High Point has many programs, clubs, and sports such as; the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC), Student Government Association (SGA), the Honor Society (HS), the Choir, the Band, Christian Club, Haitian Club, the Modern Dance Team (MDT), the African Dance Team, News Paper, Lacrosse, Softball, Cheerleading and many more! Whoever you are and what ever your interest are there is something for you.

The problem however, are the school buses who either come 20 minutes to sometimes an hour late or do not show up at all.

The Prince George's County Public School system is one that is sure to put students first; however, what I would like to see change are the disciplinary actions and protocol for bullying/fighting. Students all over the county are being suspended and expelled for using self defense against bullies and people that antagonize them. I believe that the students that are simply defending themselves from such actions should not be penalized. Staff members are willing to threaten students with checking the cameras when it is for their benefit; but, when students ask staff members to check the cameras to bring justice to their predicament, nothing is being done. I would like for this to change because their are so many records being blemished and damaged for something as simple as defending themselves.
I go to the University of Maryland I think our school is fantastic! However, I think a lot of other schools in the Prince George's area needs a lot of work. I have been a tutor in the PG county area and a lot of the families are low income and need more help. A lot of my students had to skip sports to be part of tutoring because their parents could not pick them up at certain times and they had no other after school programs.
