While overall I believe the St. Louis City Public School district needs to change some things, my personal school was a good choice for me. The school I attended was considered a magnet school and it was one of the better schools in the district. The overall district needs to work on how it prepares students for the ACT, and college. There aren't many individual oppurtunities for college readiness programs. That definitely needds to change!

Had some really great teachers that you could tell really cared about their students. The teachers created a very safe environment for their students throughout high school. They are the reasons I want to become a teacher!
What I like about St. Louis public School is Vashon High. This school has the best basketball team in the district. I loved the teachers that was their. They were genuinely nice and had good teaching skills. What I would like to see change is having more funding for the school. The school can have better books and computers for the school. Another changed would be for parents to get involved with the school. Getting more parents to come to parents teacher conferences. This type of involvement would really help the school out and make it better place for the students and teachers.
