Many people I was friends with outside of my high school went to much bigger cities than I did. With this being said, I loved how small and close our community was. I was an all round athlete so I payed attention to who was in the crowds each time there was an event. I seen the same people there for all events even if they weren’t supporting someone they knew personally. Growing up in a small town like Sandwich made it easy to enjoy High School. We all came together and supported one another. The faculty and staff members were always available and were also there for sporting events, academic achievements, and private student help. I have never felt left out or neglected as a Sandwich High School student and appreciate all the help and knowledge that was given to my classmates and myself l.

This school district has teachers that care about their students, and it's obvious. They're willing to help always, and they're very friendly and most teachers I've had have made a personal connection with me, which I appreciate. However, there is little to no food variety in the cafeteria, and the administration is not very proactive. I've encountered a few issues during my time at Sandwich High School, and they did very little or nothing about the problems I was having. Other than that, I've enjoyed my time in the Sandwich school district.
The biggest thing I enjoy about Sandwich High School is the teachers. I have had a couple amazing teachers over the course of my high school career that have really motivated me to try my very best and who have shaped me into the person I am today. One thing I would like to see Sandwich High School change is the security. My little sister was constantly getting bullied throughout the entire year and when the administration was informed on the situation, they barely did anything. On top of that, the security cameras in the hallways couldn't pick up on who my sister was getting bullied by due to the lack of visibility through the cameras. My family had discovered that administration could only see through one of the schools many different cameras.
