My experience with Elmwood High School has been great. I have made amazing friends and have received all the educational requirements needed. For the future I think that Elmwood High School should start providing more classes like astrology, anatomy, mythology, and more specific classes like those.

Elmwood High School has its up's and down's. Its academics are certainly on the higher end. The curriculum is informative and challenging. The teachers are more than just outlets of learning, they are personal and available so that their students can learn the material more thoroughly and take it with them in life.
Some of the other staff and faculty, on the other hand, needs a change. They're impersonal, show favoritism towards students and activities, and treat some students with hatred and bias. It's disgusting. Students who are lacking in their mental health and wisdom are tossed aside and left to fail because the aid and help they need takes away from the budget that they don't want to spend. I've watched family and friends have to leave because the school did not offer the help it should.
So while I love most of my teachers, I believe deep within my heart that Elmwood High School needs a good, cleaning enima.
During my very short time at Elmwood, I felt very safe and comfortable. Both students and teachers were very generous and welcoming. Changing schools and being the new kid can be rough, but Elmwood made the experience easy and pleasing.
