Ernest W. Seaholm High School Reviews
Review Ernest W. Seaholm High School
Seaholm high school is quite frankly, the land of endless opportunities. They provide students with the materials they need to strive and prosper for high school and beyond. They also provide students with hundreds of clubs, classes, and athletics to let students really find who they are and what they love to do. If I personally would want to change one thing about Seaholm, it would have to be the lack of diversity. I am 100% Albanian and have been raised in an Muslim household. Both those things are quite taboo at Seaholm because the general population is white and once you mention to them what ethnicity you are, things get weird and they do not know how to react.
A lot of teachers assign worksheet after worksheet in exchange for actually teaching the material. Engaging discussions in the classroom are hard to come by, which is worrying because I feel as if we are not adequately gaining the skills necessary to extrapolate and adapt to other situations requiring more critical thinking skills. There is a program at the school, called Flex, that blends history and language arts. If this program were extended to all students at the school, I think the students would benefit from the advanced courses that allow students to present ideas and have them commented on and critiqued in a constructive manner. Teachers, generally, have a decent relationship with students.
The teachers at the high school that I attended were all over the place. Some teachers were fantastic, while others were lacking. I was lucky enough to have some of the best teachers who mentored me into becoming the person I am today, but was unfortunate to have the complete opposite experience. It was clear that most of the teachers cared for their students, and wanted to see them succeed, but many failed to give the students an appealing lesson, that ended up boring us to tears. To add onto that, the teachers were very inconsistent with their grading methods, as some teachers used PowerSchool, and others didn't. In addition, many of the English teachers took forever to grade homework, and usually put in all of the assignments from the entire trimester into PowerSchool at the end of the trimester. In conclusion, I had some of the best mentors throughout my high school experience, though there were a few that were less than pleasing.
