In High school, I met teachers who I dearly love, but there are still many racist teachers, one who insulted my culture, to a high level! He makes fun of every races accents.He spent class periods looking up child molesters. I am afraid of that teacher, he is insane and talks about how if he had children he would let them believe in Satan, I am sad knowing there is a teacher like that close by. l wrote letters to the principle about this teacher, the principle promises change but nothing does, Is not a student supposed to feel comfortable around teachers ?!
mmediately, he also insults Mexican culture, (which is my culture) to a high degree! Makes fun of every races accents. I am literally now afraid of that teacher, he is insane and talks about how if he had children he would let them believe in Satan, I am so uncomfortable knowing that there is a teacher like him in our school

I liked how the classes were organized out and how we did not have block schedules. I really enjoyed how the teachers made class enjoyable and made me feel like I was one of their own children. Granted, I went to Yankton High School in 2016, but that sense of belonging is still apparent throughout the school. Yankton High School shaped me into a hardworking, self-loving person and my high school experience was forever changed by the impact Yankton High School gave me.
I love how the staff is always there for you when you need it. They help you to understand if you don't get something. They come in early to help you out. They sell pop-tarts in the morning for kids who may not get breakfast. They get you ready for the real world. They are supportive of me and my decisions.
