The teachers in the Royal Oak School District have helped shape me into who I am today. They have offered empathetic and personal help, as well as an overall understanding of their students. There is plenty of room to involve yourself, with multiple clubs, and originations to join and commit yourself to. The student community, however, has presented itself as inconclusive and hard to jump into if you have difficulty connecting to others, and the funding for the arts is not focused on the development of the students, rather the schools reputation and aesthetic appeal. Overall, a wonderful to place to learn and develop.

I thought the staff and students cared a lot about their interests and beliefs. Many students were very active in their interests, like music, sports, and other clubs created for all different and common interests. What I would like to see change is the effectiveness shown throughout all teachers at the schools. Some teachers or teaching styles were not as good as others. I would have to say some teachers were not meant to teach and or did not show as much effort as others.
I moved to Royal Oak my freshmen year of high school, and it has been such a great experience. The students were extremely welcoming to me when I first arrived, and I made some of the best friends I could ever ask for. The teachers there are also fantastic. I have not only learned so much from each and every one of them, but have also felt comfortable enough to be myself.
