My experience at Tri-Center was stupendous! I was able to be in as many and as little extracurricular activities that I wanted. The only thing that I think needs to be changed up a little bit is the bullying aspect. There is not a lot of bullying that takes place but every now and then there is some bullying and I think Tri-Center is capable to get bullying down to 0%.
I love going to school at Tri-Center. I enjoy seeing all of my friends in the halls and giving them big smiles! I would like to see less bullying in the halls and more people sticking up for others. Our school does a great job including everyone, but there are still some jerks who like to harass innocent people.
