My experience at Duncan Polytechnical is wonderful. I am currently in the Mash Academy also known as the academy for nursing and physical therapy. I have had many hands on experiences. And am currently recieveing certifications. For example, the CPR certification and other different certifications. Meanwhile, something I Would like to change is the school menu, which os quiet repetitive, boring, and simple.

Duncan Polytechnical I believe is the school for creating your pathway into the world of nursing as you can certify in becoming a CNA at the end of your senior year, benefiting so many students, in the long run, to begin their education/ career in medicine. It is very beneficial to students and prepare us for the workforce after high school or even continuing to go to college. Overall, Duncan has helped me with my people, communication, teamwork skills and creating a good work ethic.
My experience at Duncan is going very good. The school is well prepared for teaching kids how to be college ready. I am currently enrolled in the MASH academy, looking forward to attend the occupational therapy class my junior and senior year. The students are all connected as one. The teachers have all the resources you would need to come to school and be ready to get your education. One thing I would like to see change, is parent involvement. I believe some or most parents should be involved with the school because overall they are preparing all of us for college and to have a big future.
