At Dominion, students are encouraged and supported fairly well throughout their high school career. I personally have most appreciated the academic rigour and community feel however there are miniscule aspects that could be improved about the school such as the staff/administration. The challenge that the school presents academically is helpful in pushing students to achieve testing and volunteering goals. Also, participation and achievements are reinforced with awards and recognition. The community feel that exists allows students to feel comfortable in activities throughout the school day. Lastly, an improvement that would benefit the school is investing more time into selecting a strong staff. One that provides training that helps teachers teach better, as well as giving them tips on how to connect with students more.
Overall, as a junior at Dominion, I am pleased with my experience so far.
